"The practice of meditation is an act of kindness, for others as well as for yourself."
Every Thursday, a few of us come together to sit in silence for an hour, share some aha-moments for the second hour and often have a light meal afterwards. There are no teachers, or agendas. Inspired by family in Santa Clara, Awakin at Ahmedabad and many others around the globe, Awakin Circles offer a space to come together and share in a context of stillness, community and service.
Our circle is not a religious or commercial venture. It is the creation of a time and space where we can step out of our hurly-burly lives and gain insight about ourselves. No agenda -- just a belief in inner change. :)
To attend this Thursday at 7:15 PM, simply fill up the below form and you'll be emailed all the details. There is no charge and no one is expected to bring anything but their lovely presence. The rough format of this evening is as follows:
An hour of collective silence; its unguided, without any instructions or music. For first-timers, this primer on meditation may be helpful.
A short reading (sent out earlier via email), followed by a circle of sharing of "aha" moments from everyday life.
Awakin circles started when three friends got together in 1996 to sit in silence, every Wednesday, in an ordinary living room in Silicon Valley. Instead of closing the door, they left it open ... to all. The rest, as they say, is history.
