Wake Up Netherlands – Monks on Tour

May 9, 2017 @ May 9, 2017 - May 18, 2017 @ May 18, 2017

Are you curious about how mindfulness could make a difference for you in your daily life? For example: how you deal with stress, difficult emotions, complex relationships with friends, co-students, roommates or relatives? Or are you just interested in living life in a more relaxed and joyful way?

Then please feel free to come meet our ‘special guests’: young Dutch Buddhist monks and nuns, who have chosen a life of mindfulness and awareness, and who would really like to share their experiences with you.

In case the words ‘monks and nuns’ scare you a little: don’t worry! They aren’t boring or uptight at all. On the contrary, they’re very kind, playful and funny 🙂

In May, Wake Up the Netherlands organizes a university tour, in which the monks and nuns engage with students in five Dutch cities:

Wake Up is a world-wide network of young people, who feel inspired by Zen Buddhism as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh, and who try to make the world more beautiful by waking up to the here & now. Together, we apply the art of living with awareness (or: living mindfully) to our daily lives: in our studies, in our relationships, in our families, at work and in our neighbourhood. And we do this our own way: playful, unique and totally 21st-century-style.
