This month’s Sunday Assembly Edinburgh is about Lifefulness, and we’re very excited to welcome Sunday Assembly co-founder Sanderson Jones. As many of you know, Sanderson is also a comedian and social activist who loves to build community and personal connections – he one sold out a show at Sydney Opera House by selling all the tickets personally!

Sanderson is taking Sunday Assembly forward by developing his ideas about Lifefulness. You’ve heard of Mindfulness – taking Buddhist meditation, secularising it and building its scientific credibility. Well, Sanderson thinks that Sunday Assembly does something analogous to that but with congregation. We take the idea of a church congregation, secularise it, build scientific credibility (and add great pop songs!) – and we get Lifefulness. With Sunday Assembly we want to help everyone live life as fully as possible. Sanderson is a wonderful, energetic and lively speaker, and a fun hour is assured.

Sanderson will be joining us alongside his Fringe run, Claire will be doing her best, there will be songs to sing with the house band, poems to reflect on, and of course tea and cake. Sunday Assembly is fun, family (and dog) friendly and free. Come and join us to celebrate life!  Usual venue and time – 11.30am at Lifecare Edinburgh, 2 Cheyne Street, Stockbridge EH4 1JB.
