when you change within,
THE WORLD CHANGES
Awakin gatherings started when three friends got together in 1996 to sit in silence, 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.
Today, Awakin Circles have organically rippled to eighty cities around the globe. People meditate for the first hour, engage in a circle of reflective sharing in the second hour, and conclude the night by receiving a delicious home-cooked meal. A palpable sense of gratitude and community weaves through it all. The ripples of inner transformation are countless -- and continue on.
