We are Wake Up London – a community of young people (around 16 to 35-ish) who practise mindfulness together inspired by the teachings of Zen master, poet and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh.
Founded in September 2010 and run by volunteers, we have provided a place of refuge and support for young people of many backgrounds, faiths or of none.
Through mindfulness practice, we cultivate the awareness of what is happening within and around us in the present moment. This helps us to take care of ourselves and to deal better with the challenges of life. Our vision is to contribute to building a healthier and more compassionate society.
