Young Buddhists and non-Buddhists for a healthy and compassionate society. Waking up together, waking up the world.
We have been organizing monthly meditation flash mobs since June 2012 and they have been fantastic in bringing people of all ages and all faiths and of none, together in one place for meditation. We will continue to come together once a month and practice together in our meditation flash mob meetings. Generally when the weather is good we meet in the Belfast Botanic gardens. The format tends to be the same. Starting with 15 minutes sitting meditation followed by 15 minutes of walking meditation and rounded off with another short sitting meditation. Come and be part of these truly beautiful and peaceful gatherings.
The international Wake Up movement lead by young people is helping to wake up the world through mindful, community, ethical, and radical living. Currently there are Wake Up communities in France, Germany, Belgium, USA, Nederlands, UK... Now IRELAND! The Wake Up movement started at Plum Village Monastery in France, summer 2007.

Wake Up Dublin is a community of young people in Dublin cultivating mindful living. We are inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. However, we explore various forms of mindfulness practice.
We meet weekly, alternating between Friday and Sunday. Each meeting is facilitated by two members of our group and tends to follow this structure:
The first part of the meeting is dedicated to mindful practice, generally inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh teachings amongst others, guided and silent sitting meditation, mindful walking, mindful movement and reading the 5 Mindfulness Trainings.
In the second part we practice Dharma sharing. This may include readings and videos that members of the group find inspirational for their mindfulness practice as well as sharing of experiences and questions around mindfulness in our daily lives. This gives the last hour of the meet-up a special flavour of openness and acceptance.

We welcome young people between the ages of 18 and mid to late thirties.
Time and Location: Alternating between Friday, 7.30 pm, and Sunday, 7.00 pm, we meet @ Oscailt, 8 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4
