Are you interested in meditation, then do signup for the event on Friday November 26!


This is a personally-led meditation session for everyone, lasting about an hour, and will be a live ZOOM event. Our guide, Doreen, is an ESCC member with many years of meditation experience both at home and abroad. Meditating is easy (you cannot do it wrong) the benefits are shown to be life enhancing in every way. Meditation requires nothing more than to just be there.

Events, online and not

As we are getting closer to a less restricted daily environment, we are getting more and more events planned that will be in person and face to face.

This is great news but it still wont replace the ZOOM-meeting completely, if you check our current event list you will find events that are held by persons from another continent 🙂 . This would be hard to achive if we hadn’t learned to use digital means during the current pandemic.

So please, check our website and see if you can’t find an event that will fit you!

ESCC SoftBall

Hello fellow ESCCers!

It’s time to mark your calendar with Softball on Gardet Saturday 4 September.

As we have in the past, we we’ll meet up with Toni Olander at Gardet at the far end of the Swedish Film Institute (situated near the end of Valhallavagen) at 2:00 pm.

We will then find a suitable place for a friendly ESCC-style softball game with no experience required. But one thing is needed–a ‘crowd’ of players! And if you happen to have a bat, ball or gloves please bring them with you.

After the game we will stroll over the field to the playground grill with Anita for hotdogs!

Please sign up with me Anita Coty-Irestrand by Friday 3 September so that we know how much food and drink etc to buy. (070 397 1029).
