Starting a Wake Up community
Click here if you would like some information on starting a Wake Up community.
Please also visit the all-ages community directory. We highly recommend practising with an all-ages community before starting a Wake Up community, particularly if you are quite new to this practice. It can be very beneficial to practice with others who are experienced in the practice as well as with building a community.
Mindfulness bell app
If you’re looking to be connected virtually, you can join the Wake Up group via the Insight Timer app on your iPhone/Android/iPad. Once you join, when you open the app you see a list of everyone in the group who is using the app to meditate at that exact moment, anywhere in the world! To join the group first create a profile on “Insight Connect” then click ‘groups’, and at the bottom of the page you can do a search for ‘Wake Up’.
Virtual Skype sangha
The Daffodil Sangha is an online Skype meditation group that sits two mornings a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30 GMT for 30 mins). We are a small group with between 3 and 10 members sitting at any time. Join their Facebook group if you’re interested in meditating with them online.
