Awakin Lisbon, Portugal

"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

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 going to participate 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 an everyday 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.

Simply put, this evening will be about sharing. A typical evening flows like this :
 

18:30PM An hour of collective silence; its unguided, without any instructions or music. (Try to arrive 10 minutes before) 
19:30PM A short reading followed by a circle of sharing of "aha" moments from everyday life.
20:30PM A vegetarian meal. 

To join, simply let us know with your email address below and we'll email you all the logistical information.

Wish you a month full of truly human experiences :) 

A big big smile   --Joao

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.
