The Wake Up Experience defends the rights of ALL humans, animals, and the planet. Since we have no need to consume other beings for survival, or to exploit them in any way, we're left asking the question:


What is it  that makes us treat animals as if they are

here  FOR us rather than here  WITH us?




The Future is Kindness.  The Future is Compassion.


Veganism is a moral and ethical decision, which can be difficult to make without knowing the facts. Luckily, information is constantly becoming accessible to expose ourselves to truths. Below are a variety of eye-opening resources for you to explore. We implore you to investigate the reality of what billions of animals experience on a daily basis, keeping in mind that wilful ignorance is a choice that serves no one.


Big Love & Compassion,  



A documentary film about humankind's total dependence on animals for economic purposes. It's presented in five chapters (pets, food, clothing, entertainment and scientific research) and is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. 

Land of Hope and Glory aims to show the truth behind UK land animal farming by featuring the most up to date investigations as well as never before seen undercover footage, with a total of roughly 100 UK facilities featured throughout the film. Land of Hope and Glory is made by the founders of the animal rights organisation, Surge.

Dominion uses drones, hidden and handheld cameras to expose the dark underbelly of modern animal agriculture, questioning the morality and validity of humankind’s dominion over the animal kingdom. While mainly focusing on animals used for food, it also explores other ways animals are exploited and abused by humans, including clothing, entertainment and research.

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or VEGAN diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.

“I believe most of us are vegan in our hearts.

          Change is a matter of simply listening

              to our hearts and aligning our actions 

                   with what is already present within us.

We’re literally WAKING UP the Vegan within.”
