Once we knew, we wanted to do something about it and put Glasgow on the map as we really believe people make Glasgow and care about world peace. After a bit of pondering, deliberation and too-ing and fro-ing we went for it and booked a beautiful room over-looking Buchanan Street at The Royal Concert to put together a public meditation for 100 people to mark the occasion. A few months on and an amazing event is taking shape… director of Interfaith Scotland Maureen Sier will be setting the scene with the theme this year “The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70” which celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights– the most translated document in the world (available in more than 500 languages apparently) which is as relevant today as it was on the day that it was adopted. Poet Imogen Stirling and David from Samadhi Soundscapes will also be joining us to make the event a truly inspirational and memorable occasion. The event is entirely not-for-profit. Everyone involved is doing it for free. Tickets are £5 so we can cover the room hire and posters we are using to help market the event. We can’t wait to be part of a 100 people meditating together, hope you can join us! Tickets available from Eventbrite here. The Wee Retreat A special shout out to Holistic Scotland Magazine for their media coverage for the event.
