Wild Geese Sangha at SantosaMindfulness Meditation with Wild Geese Sangha

Every Monday | 7 – 8.30 pm

Join the Wild Geese Sangha, who follow the teachings of Thích Nhất Hạnh, a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist Master. The UK Community of Interbeing offers meditation classes and retreats across the UK where people come together to share mindfulness practice.

Every Monday evening the Edinburgh Wild Geese Sangha meet at Santosa from 6.45 pm for a 7 pm start. The evening normally finishes at 8.30 pm and usually includes guided sitting meditation, walking meditation and silent sitting. All are welcome – open to people of different faiths and none. Please join us at one of our regular meetings.

We ask for a minimum contribution of £5 for the session to pay for the venue hire. Your generosity enables us to continue to meet and share practice together. For more information visit wildgeesezen.org/

Mindfulness is our inherent capacity of healing and renewal. It is the basis for transforming ourselves and creating a more harmonious family and society. To be mindful is to be aware of what is going on in our body, in our feelings, in our mind and in the world, as we avoid doing harm to ourselves and others. With the help of conscious breathing – breathing and knowing we are breathing, we are able to touch and be nourished by the peace and joy that are available within and around us, in the here and now.

Our true home is in the present moment. To live in the present moment is a miracle. The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now. Peace is all around us – in the world – and in nature – and within us – in our bodies and our spirits. Once we learn to touch this peace, we will be healed and transformed. It is not a matter of faith; it is a matter of practice.
