Community Night: Poetry, Meditation and Art

In the safe space of Sangha, opening ourselves to the flow of life in us and giving expression using coloured pens, pencils, crayons and soft pastels on paper. Being present , letting go of the inner critic, trusting emergence – all these attitudes are more important than artistic skill. The Turner Prize winning Glasgow artist Martin Creed said in a recent interview in the Glasgow Herald, about his art making: ‘I am trying to fight against my inclination to try and control things….I am just trying to live my life.’

Please bring arts materials (‘clean’ ones, like coloured pens, pencils, crayons and soft pastels, and paper) and we will provide some too.

Led by Ratnadevi and Angela

Soup will be provided but please bring vegetarian food to accompany and share.

The community night takes place every Sunday evening throughout the year and provides a space for folk to come together and connect. Evenings are often organised around a specific theme or event but we also have open space evenings which allow for what might emerge between us without any fixed ideas of what that might be. One night a month an evening is dedicated to meditation.  Event nights provide the opportunity for Sangha members to share something that inspires them as well as offering a platform for specific groups at the GBC. Typically members form a team to take responsibility for a particular evening. Attendance is open to all.

if you have ideas on something that inspires you that you would like to share as a Community night event then please contact Don Allan (
