GBC Community Hygge: A Day at the Seaside

The Danish concept of hygge emphasises "a pleasant and highly valued everyday experience of safety, equality, personal wholeness and a spontaneous social flow".

The GBC monthly community hygge is going to the beach! If you'd like an opportunity to get to know your Sangha better then please join us at 11am on Sunday August 20th as we travel to Troon for the afternoon. There'll be no set plan for the day except for having lunch together and seeing how the day unfolds as we aim to develop our bonds as Sangha. We'll be meeting at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre before walking down to Central Station to catch the train to Troon. Please bring a packed lunch with you. This event is open to all.

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 (
