*Wake Up is a worldwide network and a programme to enthuse and expose young people between the ages of 18 and 35 to concrete mindfulness practices of true love and compassion, clearly showing the way towards a life in harmony with each other and with the Earth. It encourages people who want to help their society – a society overloaded with intolerance, discrimination, craving, anger and despair.
These sessions are spontaneous gatherings ranging from a one to three hour programme – with meditation, songs, and other mindfulness practices (mindful eating, total relaxation, sharing from the heart, Questions and Answers), helping to release the tension in one?s body and feelings, use of compassionate listening and loving speech to help restore communication and to live and enjoy each moment more deeply.
It has worked very well with British youth in Cambridge, Oxford (5000 people gathered at Trafalgar Square) and US Ivy League Colleges like Harvard and Yale, leading to a number of Wake Up groups across the world. http://in.wkup.org Facebook page: www.facebook.com/wkupindia.
