Awakin Delhi, India

"Meditation is not a means to an end; there is no end, no arrival; it is a movement in time and out of time. Every system, method, binds thought to time, but choiceless awareness of every thought and feeling, understanding of their motives, their mechanism, allowing them to blossom, is the beginning of meditation." ‑‑J. Krishnamurti

Periodically, a few of us come together for local Awakin Circles where we sit in silence for an hour, share some aha-moments for the second hour and share a vegetarian meal afterwards. There no teachers, or agendas. To stay connected, please add your email to our mailing list and we'll keep you posted about the next one. If you can have any questions, you can also contact us anytime by using the form below.

Kindness   We convene in central Delhi, go out to do acts of random kindness and return for a reflective circle of sharing. Sometimes, we'll offer food, visit brothels, or spread positive messages -- all in the spirit of kinship.

NGO Visits   Lot of friends run amazing efforts -- like Goonj and Manzil -- in the city; we spend an afternoon serving them in hands on work, and expose ourselves.

Stories   To counter-act the negativity in the media, we visit everyday heroes (like Subba Rao) and have a deep conversation with them about today's issues. Later, we publish those conversation online and share with it friends so the ripples can spread.

Retreats   Every four to six months, local volunteers will spend a weekend together (at the Gandhi Ashram), where we deepen our shared experience of "hands, head, and heart". This is inspired by various "Moved By Love" retreats in Ahmedabad (some stories).

About Awakin Circles

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.
