Waking up to Wisdom
In Stillness and Community

Awakin Call Archives

"When you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it." --J. Krishnamurti

We've had lots of amazing calls. Each one speaks to different people in different ways, and we invite you to read the recaps, listen to the audio, share comments and spread the ideas that move you.
