New York Wake Up Meditation Meetup Group
June 24, 2016 @ 4:15 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 4:15 pm on Friday, repeating until July 22, 2016
New York Wake Up is a group of young meditation practitioners who get together to create a joyful space of refuge for young adults. We are inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. We do the fun things that New York city dwellers do, but actively maintain the best elements of our culture: inclusiveness, healthy consumption, hope, joy, great energy, activism, and community. By being wonderfully together we create support for each other. We find we are not alone with the suffering of our generation. We seek out our true selves amid the dynamics of our new relationships, new jobs, struggling minds, dynamic bodies, busy cities and big life changes. We share our success in practicing mindfulness and finding happiness. We practice with our local Sanghas, at practice centers, and with the teachings, so as to nurture our hearts and minds and create real hope for our generation and our future.
Typical evening schedule:
20 Minutes Seated Meditation
10 Min Walking Meditation
10 Min Reading
30 Min Sharing Circle
Tea And Snacks till closing

the wake up movement
There are also Wake Up communities budding across the world in North America, Europe and Asia. The Wake Up movement grew out of the Plum Village mindfulness center in SW France, under the support of Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village community of monks, nuns and lay practitioners. Wake Up ‘officially’ launched in the summer of 2008 with the goal of making the practice of mindfulness more applicable and relevant to young people.
