Secular Sangha is a grass-roots community group run entirely by volunteers. We are based in Edinburgh, Scotland, but welcome interest and participation from further afield. We are similar to Humanist groups in that we promote ethical living without reference to God. However, we differ in that we promote specific methodologies and practices aimed at personal development and transformation at the level of the individual as well as society. These methodologies are drawn primarily from the World’s Buddhist traditions and include Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. For a more detailed account of who we are and what we do, please refer to our About page and our Vision Statement.
