Moved by Love from Surat to Mumbai to Pune

Audrey shares the incredible journey on the road from Surat to Bombay to Pune interspersed with planned and unplanned gatherings, circles and deep sharing. A journey of endless acts of kindness and gratitude from friends and strangers alike.
Every Wednesday, over 80 homes are transformed into a place of worship as hosts welcome friends to join in an Awakin Circle. Last month 45 hosts gathered for an Awakin hosts retreat in Pune. Reflecting on their journeys, sharing stories and questions, the hosts became part of each others journey.
From small beginnings, the spirit of giftivism is blossoming within the Surat Community. What started with just an intention, saw 45 beautiful people came together for a one and half day retreat . During those 36 hours one act of generosity overflowed into another creating bonds of love.

'Kalyan Mitra in Rajkot'

This retreat was beautifully co-created by all the participants. Exploring the meaning of kalyan mitra (noble friend), the participants shared stories of kindness received from strangers; engaged in acts of kindness towards each other and the surrounding and left with their hearts filled with love and joy.

'NGO Retreat: A journey from head to heart'

Many questions and edges were held and explored in the recent NGO retreat. Shifting from a lens of outer transformation to inner transformation, many leaders found themselves returning home — to the values they originally committed to when they entered the sector.
