The Essential Companion for the 21st Century Yogi
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.
Heal 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.
Dive 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.
