About this event

This is the regular (weekly) meeting of the Edinburgh Wild Geese Sangha.

The Wild Geese Sangha is part of the Plum Village UK: our practice follows the teachings of Vietnamese Zen Buddhist Master, Thích Nhất Hạnh. Evenings typically consist of a period of guided meditation, some walking meditation, silent meditation and sharing of experiences. They are run by voluntary facilitators and attended by a mixture of people who have been coming for many years and those who are new to our practice.

New people are welcome! You may like to check out our website (wildgeesezen.org) before attending. If you have any questions you can use the contact form on the website. Please also use this form if you would like to be added to our mailing list for occasional updates.

Covid Safety: We have guidelines for attending our meetings. You can see these on our website. These cover limiting of numbers and wearing of masks etc. You must book a place through Eventbrite so we can track attendees to meet government guidelines.

Contributing (Dāna): We need to raise money to cover the cost of the hall as well as to maintain a small reserve as a deposit on retreat venues. There are two types of ticket:

  1. Choose "Donate online now ticket" and enter the amount you would like to contribute to book a place and make a donation.
  2. Choose "Donate some other way" to just book a place at the meeting and contribute some other way.

If you would like to donate by bank transfer please ask for details at the meeting.

The recommended donation amount is £5 per meeting. If this is too much or too little for you please just give what you can, even if it is only your smile! Generosity is part of our practice. It doesn't have to take the form or money.
