The Sangha will be taking part in the Festival of Spirituality and Peace as it has done in previous years. There will be two main events
Mindful Peace Walk in Princes Street Gardens
Sunday 4th August at 9am – 10.15am
Meeting beside Henderson’s Café by St John’s Church
This silent walking meditation will be led by members of the Edinburgh Sangha of the Community of Interbeing, who follow the practice of Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Before the walk begins there will be a brief introduction to mindful walking as meditation practice. Children are welcome when accompanied by adults.
‘We walk just for walking. We walk with freedom and solidity, no longer in a hurry. Let us enjoy every step we make.’ Thich Nhat Hanh.
Mindfulness @ Lunchtime
Tuesdays all year round 12.15pm – 2pm
St Mark’s, Castle Terrace
Stop for a while, come and find peace and mindfulness @ lunchtime – guided sitting and walking meditation, enjoying our food together, mindfully in silence, and ending with a short silent meditation, returning to the world refreshed! Mindfulness is gently bringing our attention to the present moment, involving our inherent capacity for healing and renewal. Please bring your own lunch. This is one of our regular Community of Interbeing meetings in Edinburgh and is held in collaboration with the Unitarians in Edinburgh.
