Awakin Circle in Shoreditch: Silence, Sharing and Mindful Eating

  • 42 Acres 66 Leonard Street London, England, EC2A 4LW United Kingdom (map)

'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

Awakin gatherings started when three friends got together in 1996 to sit in silence, every Wednesday, in an ordinary living room in Silicon Valley. 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 ... to all.
