Wake Up Tour in OR & WA: Sept 27 - Oct 15

Posted by Chan Phap Ho at Sep 17, 2012 06:10 AM |
Wake Up is a movement for young adults for a healthy and compassionate society. Five monks and nuns from Deer Park will go on a tour together with 4 long term lay practitioners. Please help us share this good news!

As our Teacher, Thay, has his continuation day in October a group of 9 will continue Thay, by bringing the practice of mindfulness, happiness and community building to young adults in Oregon and Washington.

We will  be on the road for three full weeks and are receiving much support from local friends in our community in terms of arranging the events, food, housing and so on. We will host events at Universities, Detention Center and offer a couple of weekend retreat (Portland and Seattle), and more. These events are geared toward young adults (18-35).

We will also host mindful meditation sessions in public, Peace is Peace. We will gather with friends for walking and sitting meditation in our cities, Eugene, Portland and Seattle. For these events everyone is welcome.

You can find more information about this tour and posters on our

Wake Up Tour Website or on Wake Up USA's Facebook page.
