Awakin Siliguri

"With every breath, the old moment is lost; a new moment arrives. We exhale and we let go of the old moment. It is lost to us. In doing so, we let go of the person we used to be. We inhale and breathe in the moment that is becoming. In doing so, we welcome the person we are becoming. We repeat the process. This is meditation. This is renewal. This is life." --Lama Surya Das

Building on a tradition started by a small group of friends in California (USA), we invite you to come and share some silence with us at the Awakin Circle, Siliguri. 

Every month, we come together to sit in silence for an hour, share some personal insights based on a reading for the second hour, and some tea afterwards. 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. :) 

The format of circle is typically as follows:

5:30PM An hour of collective silence; its unguided, without any instructions or music. For first-timers, this primer on meditation may be helpful.
6:30PM A short reading (will be sent via email), followed by a circle of personal stories and reflections from everyday life.
7:15PM Some dinner, hugs, and informal conversation.

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


We are profoundly grateful that our paths have crossed in this sacred way. Please do get in touch if you have any questions. We look forward to growing in stillness and service, together.
