Multi-Faith and Belief Chaplaincy, For All Faiths and None

Mindfulness Drop-ins

Twice-weekly lunchtime sessions led by Mindfulness Chaplain, Dr Kitty Wheater. Starting 12th September 2023.


Mindfulness lunchtime drop-in sessions run Tuesdays and Fridays, 1.10-1.50pm.

Every session consists of a guided practice, followed by guided inquiry. They are free of charge.

The practices are recorded, and subsequently available here.

All drop-ins are open to UoE students and staff, and NHS Lothian staff.

They are open to beginners, as well as supporting those with a regular (or rusty!) practice.


Tuesday: Reflection and Inquiry Drop-in

The reflection and inquiry practice explores patterns of distraction, busyness, or difficulty.

Open to all, it may particularly suit those with previous experience of mindfulness practice.

You can join any Tuesday lunchtime session on Zoom, and the guided practices are recorded and available for playback here


Friday: Grounding and Replenishment Drop-in

  • Room 1, Chaplaincy Centre, Bristo Square
  • 1.10-1.50pm

The grounding and replenishment practice explores how to settle, steady, and ground the attention.

This is also open to all – and may particularly suit beginners, or those in need of recoup on a Friday.

Friday sessions run in-person in Room 1 at the Chaplaincy Centre, Bristo Square. No booking is needed.
