Imbolc Re-emergence & 50th Anniversary Programme Launch!!

Sunday 29th January – 13:00 – 17:00

Join us for a special day of community re-emergence from the darkest day and busy festive seasons!

Join The Salisbury Centre for a gentle day in the garden with warm drink, around the fire, sharing food and good company with old and new friends!

This day will also fall on Imbolc, a Celtic seasonal celebration where our spirit begins to stretch & reawaken after the winter’s rest!

A time of new beginning, new life stirring, trials and initiations! 

Surfing on the spirit of such seasonal energy, this day will officially mark the launch of the Salisbury Centre’s 50th anniversary programme.

  • hear from some special guests who will share some of the magic history of the Salisbury Centre spanning many many decades
  • come find out first hand from our community facilitators, what community offerings and events will be available from Jan-Jun 2023 (There will be a brand new Brochure with events and information about the centre!)
  • hear from Maggie MacKechnie, current Co Clinical Manager at Wellspring organization (who sprang from the Centre in the 70’s), about the original history of how the Salisbury Centre evolved and branched in other inspiring communities in Edinburgh and beyond, amidst the growth movement of the late 60’s!
  • get inspired to be part of the next 50th years of this wonderful community, and help us celebrate and create a new vision for the next 50th years!
