What we're about

In a world that never stops, where external noise rages on and internal voices are amplified, what better way to carry on than to create a space for us all to simply sit and rest in moments of stillness and silence?
All around the city, social meditation spaces beckon. We invite you to join us for a once-a-month community sit and get inspired on making use of public and private spaces for practicing mindfulness and fostering good mental health.
“Are you able to come to a stop in your life, even for one moment? Could it be this moment? What would happen if you did?”
- Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go, There You Are
The Big Sit x Singapore is a community sit held at various urban spaces.
Anyone, with or without mindfulness meditation experience, is welcome to join. Each session lasts 45-60 minutes, and will be led and guided by an experienced mindfulness/meditation teacher. Practices will usually begin with mindful movements or walking, followed by sitting.
Please come dressed in comfortable clothes, and bring your own yoga mat/large towel, cushion, as well as drinking water. You're also encouraged to arrive at least 10 minutes earlier to set up your space.
Spaces on-site will be prioritized for paid and/or donation tickets, and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Attendees without registration may be turned away once we reach the maximum number of participants allowed at the venue. We thank you for your kind understanding towards these arrangements.
Collections from paid and donation tickets will go to The Big Sit, as a token to the teacher's time and guidance as well as to cover any administrative or miscellaneous costs in reaching out to more people and communities through The Big Sit and furthering the Conscious Cities Index Research Project for the benefit of urban wellbeing. We thank you for your very valuable contribution.
Each session will also be streamed live online, for those who are not able to join us at the venue.
Last but not least, you are also encouraged to add this event to your calendar.
