Support the BPF with your Awaken Membership
Awaken is a brand new app featuring teachings and practices by Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Lama Rod Owens, and Sensei Greg Snyder focusing on examining and working systems of oppression and our specific location within them. For our launch this November, we’re teaming up with the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, recognizing how deeply intertwined our missions are and as a show of gratitude for all the amazing work the BPF does. Awaken Founder Ravi Mishra was an attendee of the 2018 Build Block Be Retreat, and is deeply grateful for the opportunity and deep learnings received there.
For each membership purchased through this page, Awaken will donate 50% of the proceeds to the BPF. You can buy multiple memberships as gifts after you click the button - get your Awaken membership and support the BPF today!
More About Awaken…
Our Founding Teachers - Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Lama Rod Owens, and Sensei Greg Snyder - are leading lights at the intersection of mindfulness and social change. Their books, teachings, and practice centers are pioneering the inner and outer change-making work that we so desperately need in these times.
Practice with Your People
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.
Diving Deep Into Real Life
Much more than mindfulness meditation, our practices are about using mindfulness and centering in presence to dive into our entire lives, from the joyful exploration of art, romance, and sexuality to the difficulties of confronting racism and patriarchy. Our diverse offerings include movement, artistic expression, contemplative journaling and more!
Process This Overwhelming World
Our practices address and respond to current events and social injustice, 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.
