Cancelled: Drop-in Meditation

Our free daily drop-in meditation is cancelled Monday 13 April through Monday 4 May, while we pause to recruit new volunteers.   We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

After two and a half years of offering very consistent free drop-in meditation twice daily throughout the week at The Salisbury Centre, we have hit a bit of a crisis. Two of our most reliable meditation leaders have pulled back, and we will not be able to offer this consistently until we can recruit new meditation leaders.

We have decided to take a break from Monday 13 April until Monday 4 May, cancelling all our drop-in meditation sessions. During this time we hope that new volunteers will come forward to take responsibility for one or more of the sessions: 09:30-10:00 AM or 17:30-18:00 PM on any weekday.

The numbers attending these sessions are variable, but the feedback we get is that it has been very good to have free drop-in sessions. We feel that the Centre benefits enormously from this practise.

If you are interested or know anyone who might be interested in becoming a volunteer meditation leader, please contact the Office: or 0131 667 5438. 

All other meditations and activities continue as usual – including the 12 noon Meditation every Friday.

Can you help us with new projects?

The Salisbury Centre seeks enthusiastic friends who are interested in taking forward our development plans and to help us manifest the vision at a practical level.  

This will include considering the use of the building, looking at possible plans to extend, and investigating and securing financing for the projects.

You will need to be able to commit to regular meetings - about four hours per month - as well as any follow-up work arising from decisions made.

This will be an exciting and interesting process which will touch on the heart of The Salisbury Centre's purpose and meaning as laid out in the vision statement.

Kindly forward your expressions of interest to the Trustees via email to

One-to-one work in the Garden Room

We would like to welcome inquiries from people who might be interested in using the Garden Room for one-to-one work such as massage or other body work, and psychotherapy. Up to now our emphasis has been on supporting group work at the Salisbury Centre, so this marks a change in focus.

We expect all practitioners at the Salisbury Centre to have an active spiritual practice which is integrated into their work. At present we would expect our practitioners to be trained and accredited, and be able to demonstrate membership of a professional body with a code of ethics, as well as having an indemnity insurance.

For more information about rates and conditions please contact Renate our administrator.
