Stressed and fed-up? This mass meditation in Nottingham’s Old Market Square could lift your mood
The UK’s first community mass meditation will be taking place in Nottingham’s Old Market Square as research continues to reveal numerous health benefits.
There’s space for up to 1,000 people to indulge in a spot of peaceful meditation, led by US expert Sarah McLean at noon on Saturday May 13. People of any age are welcome.
The practice is said to reduce stress, improve concentration and increase happiness.
Unplugged Space is behind the ThinKNotts event. Co-founder and registered nurse Sue Cooper said: “Daily stress can take its toll. A few moments of meditative calm can help improve mood, a sense of well-being and boost energy levels considerably.”
Places are free but people are asked to reserve a place at tiny.cc/thinknotts
The meditation is part of a day of well-being which starts at 11am, with musicians, nutritional advice and complementary therapies.
Nottingham’s Tiger Boe Centre, in Clarendon Street, has become a hub for free weekly meditation sessions – every Saturday attracting people of all ages, including children.
Unplugged Space has a five-year vision for community-based hubs in schools, universities, workplaces, health centres and creative spaces.
