Awakin Circles (Now Virtual!)

We've all heard the phrase, "When life gives us lemons, we make lemonade." In so many ways, the current disruption of our lives is inviting us to hold new questions and perhaps a deeper consciousness.

For decades, Awakin Circles have been held in living rooms around the globe. Now, they are still held -- but virtually. Moreover, we now have opportunity to cross pollinate across global circles! While you can RSVP as usual for each circle, below is a listing of various virtual events that you may enjoy:

Host Your Own Circle

Awakin gathering are rooted in silence, community and service. For some more context, read this blog on "The Extra 'Ordinariness' of Wednesdays".

Broadly speaking, Awakin Circles are a grassroot expression of stillness and service.  More than a dozen years ago, a small group of people came together to sit in silence for an hour, share aha-moments in the second hour and eat dinner in the third hour.  There were no teachers, no brand, no marketing, no commerce, no agenda.  Just a humble space for anyone to enjoy.  Over the years, more than 20 thousand people walked into that living room, many of whom were visiting friends who wanted to start "Wednesdays" in their own local community.
