Wake Up

Young Buddhists and non-Buddhists for a Healthy and Compassionate Society.

Inspired by the teachings of Zen Master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. We come together to practice mindfulness in order to take care of ourselves. The Five Mindfulness Trainings offer us concrete practices of true love and compassion, and a path towards a life in harmony with each other and the Earth. 

We want to help our world which is overloaded with intolerance, discrimination, craving, anger and despair. Seeing the environmental degradation caused by our society, we want to live in such a way that our planet Earth can survive for a long time.

Practicing mindfulness, concentration and insight, enables us to cultivate tolerance, non-discrimination, understanding and compassion in ourselves and the world. This involves the practice of mindful waking, breathing, smiling, sitting, eating, talking, listening and enjoying each other’s company. If you are a young person inspired to cultivate mindfulness and compassion in your life, we invite you to join the Wake Up movement. Simply sitting quietly, walking in nature, sharing deeply and hanging out together, being really present for one another, can be totally nourishing, supportive – and refreshing!
