Virtual Drop-ins

The weekly Mindfulness Virtual Drop-in consists of a weekly email, with a suggested practice, theme, and article or podcast episode for reflection, to explore in your own time.

Past themes have included:

  • Responding wisely to fear and worry
  • Social distancing as an act of love
  • Interrupting a spiralling mind
  • Needs and hungers during a pandemic
  • The pressure to be productive during lockdown
  • Finding comfort when you are sick.

 

The virtual drop-in replaces weekly sessions at:

  • The Chaplaincy Centre at Bristo Square
  • The Vet School at Easter Bush
  • Chancellor’s Building, Little France
  • The Western General.

 

To receive the email each week, email mindfulness@ed.ac.uk and ask to be added to the mail-list for your local drop-in.

 

The mailing-lists for Little France and the Western General are also open to NHS Lothian staff.

 

The virtual drop-in is written by Dr Kitty Wheater, Mindfulness Chaplain.
