Register at funtomeditate@gmail.com at least 48 hours before the session.

Saturday sessions start at 10 am and Tuesday sessions at 9.30.

Lots of us took up mindfulness and meditation during lockdown – you might as well put the time to good use – but meditating on your own at home can, paradoxically, be distracting. Is the washing machine on? Should I be putting away the laundry? Am I doing it right?

Since early 2020, the Findhorn Unitarian Network has been bringing together Unitarians from across the UK – and one or two from Australia! – to meditate together on Zoom. It runs two one-hour sessions a month, one on a Saturday morning and one on a Tuesday morning. Meditations are led by a member of FUN and have covered a wide range of meditational approaches: mindful breathing, gentle yoga movements, Taize chanting, and many more.

All are welcome, and the sessions start with a check-in – we all give our names and how we’re feeling, then we light a candle, and we’re off! It can really help to be part of a meditating group, as it sets aside the time to meditate, and makes it feel more like something we’ve all committed to do together. If you’re interested in joining in, just send an email to funtomeditate@gmail.com: (it’s free, but donations to FUN are encouraged).
