Meditation Flash Mobs: Turning Sidewalks Into Holy Places

by Yasha Wallin

March 13, 2013

In the U.K., a group called Wake Up London is turning the streets into their place of worship. Inspired by the teachings of peace activist and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, Wake Up London started in 2010 as a group of 16-35 year olds focused on practicing awareness and thoughtful living. For the last two years, they have been mobilizing meditation flash mobs, taking over public spaces with a mob of mindfulness.

They've converged on Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, City Hall, and a room in the Victoria & Albert Museum dropping into Buddha-like postures at the sound of a bell, startling passersby and demonstrating that anyone can look inward, even amidst the chaos of a bustling city like London.
