"The practice of meditation is an act of kindness, for others as well as for yourself." ‑‑Thanissaro Bhikku

Message From Host:

We meet to share the complicity of silence, the gentle light of a new reading and the gratitude of a shared meal. 

If it is the first time, you are participating find bellow a little explanation about the objectives and background of the Awaking Circles.    

About fifteen years ago, three people decided to sit in silence for an hour, in a Silicon Valley living room. No teachers or gurus. No set agendas or proposed beliefs either — just one strong principle -- when you change within, the world changes. And instead of closing the door, they left it open, open to all. The rest, as they say, is history.

Inspired by Awakin Circle and the spirit of community, we will sit in silence for an hour, do a circle of sharing and have a home-cooked vegetarian meal together.

No agenda, no cost. Just like-minded people connecting and sharing space.  Feel free to contact me for more info, for those who confirm attendance. I will share more details about the address.

This evening will be about sharing. A typical evening flows like this :
 

19:30PM An hour of collective silence; it's unguided, without any instructions or music. (Try to arrive 5 minutes before) 
20:30PM A short reading followed by a circle of sharing of "aha" moments from everyday life.
21:30PM A shared meal (everyone brings something). 

To join, send your email address, and we'll email you all the logistical information.

Wish you a month full of truly human experiences :) 

A big smile,

For each Awakin Circle, 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 no teachers, or agendas. Inspired by many others who have done this for decades, Awakin Circles offer a space to come together and share in a context of stillness, community and service.

To be notified of the next circle, simply sign-up in the right column and you'll be sent an email with more information. Below is our typical format:

7:00PM   An hour of collective silence; its unguided, without any instructions or music. For
first-timers, this primer on meditation may be helpful.

8:00PM   A short reading (sent out earlier via email), followed by a circle of sharing of "aha" moments from everyday life.

9:00PM   Vegetarian meal, and general interaction.

There is no charge and no one is expected to bring anything. People organically "pay-it-forward" to the world in their own ways.

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.
