There are many difficult, upsetting and shocking things happening in our world. And it can be easy to feel helpless, overwhelmed or even angry.
Coming together and meditating in a group, can be refuge of peace and a beautiful way to spend time with other people.
Practicing breathing and body relaxation can help to still the mind, improve concentration and reduces stress.
Part of the evening will consist of a short reading to inspire how we can use mindfulness in our everyday life, to make a difference in the world towards a more peaceful, fairer and sustainable future.
And an opportunity to share your experience in mindful speaking and listening.
The meditation practice is inspired by Buddhist teaching, but people from all spiritual paths or no paths are welcome. The group is run on a drop-in basis, no need to commit or book, just come when you like to practice in a group.
The meditations techniques and topics for the readings are tailored for adults. It may be suit for older teenagers as well, but please email me before hand, so we can make sure it’s helpful.
There is no need to have meditated before.
The meditation is facilitated by Sufiyo Andersson, for more information or to join our mailing list please email
