‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world.’

Mahatma Gandhi


A “flash mob” is a group of people meeting in a crowded public place for the purpose of engaging in a coordinated, unexpected, inspiring activity.

Wake Up London has organised flash mobs in the city to promote meditation and positive social action.

Our first meditation flash mob took place in Trafalgar Square on 2nd June 2011. About a hundred people gathered in the centre and sat in meditation for 40 minutes. We received a lot of positive feedback and there was a wonderful feeling of community among strangers. So we continued to organise more and you can see videos, pictures and the press articles.


Our intention:

1. To create an environment for people from all walks of life to come together in meditation.

2. To spread awareness of meditation to the public.

3. To come together as a community to send positive intentions out into the world.
