Event description
Celebrate two years of Earth Holders Edinburgh & help co-create a vision for the future of mindful activism after COP26

About this event

Earth Holders is a community taking mindful action for Mother Earth.

We practise non-violent direct action for the sake of our beloved planet and all life. We see this as an integral part of our spiritual life, balancing the inner path of mindfulness with the outer path of action. Through this work, we bring into being the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

We are an autonomous group who come from different spiritual traditions, and we are open to members of all faiths as well as those who do not identify with any. We draw strength and wisdom from our connection with nature and with the Earth.

We are an evolving and inclusive group actively seeking new members. You can sign up to our newsletter or see our full purpose statement here.

Earth Holders Edinburgh was launched at the Salisbury Centre on 8th December 2019.

Join us on our second anniversary to celebrate what we've achieved (such as bouncing back after lockdown to a regular schedule of New Moon gatherings and Silent Rebellions), take stock of where we are, engage with new people, brew a new vision for Earth Holders, and find a way forward for mindful activism for Mother Earth in the aftermath of COP26.

The gathering will take place from 6-9pm. The agenda will be as follows:

6:00pm Welcome, followed by a light meal (soup, bread and flapjacks)

6:30 Celebration of what we've achieved in our 2 years of existence so far

7:00 Assembly to create a vision for the future of Earth Holders, in (provisionally) 3 small groups:

-- Outward-facing action (including Silent Rebellion)

-- Inward-facing practice/regeneration/healing

-- Practicalities/organisation/etc.

8:00 Break

8.15 Plenary with reports from the small groups

8.45 Closing circle

All are welcome, whether you're an experienced activist or not, whether you identify with any particular spiritual tradition or not. We hope to see you there!

Donations for the Salisbury Centre will be collected.
