Fridays – Sitting at Dawn

Friday Mornings Early Sit

There is an opportunity to sit with others on Friday mornings at the Yoga Room ( 5 Forth Street, Edinburgh EH1 3JX) from 7:15am to 8.45am. Recommended donation £3-£5.

Each session includes:

  • getting comfortable
  • the lighting of the candle and offering of incense
  • two short chantings (in English) which state our aim (to connect ourselves to others who meditate and to thank our family, friends and teachers)
  • a reading from the writings of Thich Nhat Hanh (a couple of minutes)
  • silent sitting for 40 minutes
  • 30 minutes of breakfast (some in silence to appreciate the food we are sharing) and chatting.

For a document with the chants and a bit more details, see this google doc.

You are welcome to come along – there is no need to book – and we are friendly. It is a perfect end to the week!
