OUR ON-GOING ACTIVITIES

 

During this year we will offer meditation and mindfulness techniques, relaxation and life management skills here in the Highlands, brought to you from the West’s first and largest Tibetan Buddhist Centre, Samye Ling in the Scottish Borders.

 

Come along to one of our Wednesday evening meditation and mindfulness sessions – they are run on a drop-in, donation basis and take place in the beautiful, peaceful setting of the Chapel, next to UHI headquarters on Ness Walk, Inverness, from 7.00pm – 8.30pm.

 

Through the rest of the year we will also be holding mindfulness meditation for beginners’ introductory and follow-on courses as well as traditional Tibetan Buddhist pujas plus weekend workshops and film nights.

 

You are also very welcome to become involved in our exciting plans to set up a peace and health centre here in the Highlands and our activities are open to anyone who has a strong interest in developing their minds for the better, learning new life-skills and caring for ourselves, other people and our environment.
