Love and Justice are not two. Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.
— Rev. angel Kyodo williams

Awaken - Meditations on Love, Justice, and Healing

Bite-sized mindfulness and journaling practices that engage with today’s social, political, and cultural world. If you believe the path to social change and justice for people and planet involves both outer and inner work, Awaken is for you.
 

Process This Overwhelming World

Our practices address and respond to current events and dominant cultural themes, helping us not just digest and process what’s going on, but cultivate our inner wisdom and creativity in how we respond. We believe meditation is a crucial part of our resistance.

Awaken is for people who know we can collectively do better than the fear and hate that seem to be on the rise today.

Healing from Systems of Oppression

Racism. Patriarchy. Capitalism. The stress, anxiety, and trauma that results from these (and so many others) aren’t your fault - and yet we must heal from them if we are to live our best lives. Our practices bring this healing to the forefront.

Let's Do This


Just In Case You Thought This Was Just Another Meditation App...

Awaken is not just an app with meditations about love, justice, and healing - we're completely dedicated to both being and catalyzing the revolution our world so desperately needs however we can. We ask for a small monthly or annual membership fee for full access to our library of meditation practices - but we also offer free membership to anyone who asks. Just let us know via the membership sign up page on the app. And we don't stop there - the ethos of gifting is one of the core principles we embody and hope to infuse into everything we do.
