At long last, Sunday Assembly Edinburgh is back to meeting IN REAL LIFE. Our May assembly is at Lifecare Edinburgh, 2 Cheyne St, Stockbridge where we will welcome all who want to celebrate life together with like-minded others in our ‘secular congregation’. 11.30am start for about an hour.
Our guest speaker is Thomas Bak (University of Edinburgh). Thomas is a cognitive neuroscientist whose work focuses on the impact of language learning and bi-/multilingualism on cognitive functions and wellbeing across the lifespan. He’ll be speaking about the benefits of bilingualism in maintaining thinking skills and health in general. What a great theme to gather around once again.
There will also be our usual mix of songs to sing together (with our house band), poems, reflections, and the chance to chat with fellow assemblers. We will also be restarting out Community Circle to find ways we can Live Better, Help Often and Wonder More with activities and community projects. If you have a project that needs help, or you’re keen to help and have no project, you’re very welcome.
We will also be (attempting to) livestream the event on our usual Zoom channel. This is a first time for us, so please be patient. If you are already registered for our Zoom calls, you’ll get a reminder in the usual way. If you’d like to join the livestream please register here. Sarah is hosting the Zoomies, Mark is hosting the Roomies, and we’ll all be together for an hour or so to celebrate life once again.
