Young Adults for a Healthy 
and Compassionate Society

Welcome 


We recognize that life can get busy. Real busy. And stressful. And overwhelming. Finding the time to pause and reflect is difficult, especially
amidst an ever-growing to-do list and inbox that keeps piling up. But
somehow you found yourself here, and for that we are grateful.

You’ve arrived at just the right time and you’re in just the right state of
mind. All of the things you did prior to now are done and everything you
need to do later can wait. You are here!

As for us, well, we’re here as well. We’re part of the Wake Up movement.
We represent a world-wide network of young people practicing the living
art of mindfulness.

If you know a thing or two about mindfulness, great. If you’re new to the
practice, even better. The most important thing to remember about mindfulness is that it is to be experienced. Words and people can describe it, but its true transformative power will be seen when you are able to practice it
for yourself. That’s what we’re here to help you with.

Being mindful is simple, but not always easy. The practices we’ll cover will
equip you with your own ‘mindfulness toolkit’ that you can use anywhere,
anytime, with anybody. Practicing mindful breathing, sitting, walking,
eating, talking and listening... all of these can open doors of happiness and
peace. They provide some space between you and the stress found in the realities of everyday life. With this space comes joy, relief, and healing; you are free to just be.

With gratitude,
The Wake Up Team
