Awake in the World: A festival of meditation, arts and social vision


September 12 / 8:00 PM - September 15 / 6:00 PM

How can we talk about creating an 'awake' or 'enlightened' society in the 21st century? How do we nurture the inner resources needed for the challenges of living and working today?


Can creating space for a practice of meditation or creativity transform what we do in the world? Can it even transform society itself?

As part of the anniversary celebrations marking Chögyam Trungpa's 50 years in the West, this weekend festival will feature keynote talks from leading speakers and creative workshops designed to wake us up to the magical quality of the world.


Take part in an evolving discussion on how we can act effectively in the world - whether in the fields of education, environment, social action, or in our own workplaces and families.


We would welcome volunteers to help with the festival  - do get in contact if you would like to come and be part of the team.


We look forward to celebrating this anniversary together!
