We are Wake Up Dublin – a community of young people (18 to 35-ish) who practise mindfulness inspired by the teachings of Zen master, poet and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh.
We come together to practise mindfulness in order to take care of ourselves, nourish happiness, and contribute to building a healthier and a more compassionate society. While Wake Up Dublin draws its inspiration from the Zen Buddhist teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, our community is focused on practice and not on beliefs or ideology.
We are open to all who hold an aspiration to transform themselves and contribute to a more healthy and compassionate society. We honour the unique roots of every individual and you can join as a Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jew, or Muslim as well as an agnostic, atheist or member of any other religious or spiritual grouping.
There is no charge, but donations to cover the overhead charges are welcome.
BACK TO ORIGINAL TIME OF 6-8PM
Please aim to arrive a few minutes early to facilitate greeting each other and be ready for a prompt and mindful start.
The first part of the gathering is dedicated to mindful practice, generally inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh teachings amongst others, guided and silent sitting meditation, mindful walking, mindful movement and reading the 5 Mindfulness Trainings.
In the second part, we practice Dharma sharing. This may include readings and videos that members of the group find inspirational for their mindfulness practice as well as sharing of experiences and questions around mindfulness in our daily lives. This gives the last hour of the meet-up a special flavour of openness and acceptance.
Afterwards, you're welcomed to join us for some tea and have a mindful chat to get to know each other.

We welcome young people between the ages of 18 and mid to late thirties.
At the end of our gathering, we usually ask for an optional donation to cover our rent. But don't let this stop you from coming! Your presence is always appreciated :)
