How can nourishing our sangha heal our society?

Dear friends,

Join us on Saturday 6th April for a transformative day of mindfulness led by the monastics from Plum Village, the Zen monastery established by Thich Nhat Hanh.

Recognising the value of a strong community, the monastics are offering a day specifically for our sanghas (meditation groups) in London and beyond. Friends practising with Wake Up, Heart of London, Colours of Compassion and all other sanghas are welcome. 

Living in a society that can feel lonely and harsh, taking refuge in our sangha can replenish our joyful energy. The Plum Village monastics live and work in a strong community. Learning from them can inspire us to go out into the world with a smile on our face. 

This is event is lovingly organised by Wake Up London but open to adults of all ages. 

We look forward to seeing you!

The Organising Team


Day of Mindfulness

  • 9.30 – 6.30 pm

This year, we are coming together in a beautiful church in Farringdon, central London. We will hear inspiring talks from the monastics, practise walking meditation in the church garden and take part in sharing circles. The event includes a vegan lunch, an opportunity for mindful eating!

Through this day, we hope to strengthen our relationships with others in the sangha and come away inspired to spread peace and joy in our society. 

Musical Evening

  • 7.45 – 9.30 pm

You are also invited to stay for a cosy musical evening at the Crypt. An opportunity to relax, chat and hear performances by friends in our sangha. The evening will be hosted by Joe Holtaway and feature artists from Peace Sounds, the albums in support of Plum Village. There will be time to buy dinner nearby, or you could bring food with you to eat at the Crypt.

The monastic programme will finish at 6.30pm. If you cannot stay for the evening, you can leave at this point.

We offer a 30% discount on tickets for the live podcast event and changemakers event for those who are attending the Sangha Day of Mindfulness. A discount voucher will be sent in the confirmation email after ordering your ticket.

Due to our small team we unfortunately cannot offer refunds if a ticket to the other events has been bought first.

The day is co-organised by Plum Village UK, a registered charity and Wake Up London. Ticket prices will contribute towards the costs of running the event.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is lunch included?

Vegan lunch will be served. If you have any allergies or dietary requirements, please add this in the checkout form.

Are children welcome?

Unfortunately children are not able to attend the day due to the layout of the location. We are hoping to organise a separate event for the Family Sangha on Sunday in the Quaker House.

I am unable to afford the discounted price. Is there anything I can do?

If this is a barrier to you, please contact us and we will try to find a way to cover the cost of the ticket. We cannot promise we will be able to.

Cost & Donations

The costs of this event reflect the minimum ticket price needed to facilitate a growing community in central London locations. Similarly, we are making a contribution to the cost of living of the monastics, in gratitude for that which they offer.

On the day, there will be an opportunity to make a donation to the Being Peace Centre project and the Plum Village Construction Fund.


Due to our small team of volunteers we are currently not able to offer refunds. However, please upload your ticket to TicketSwap where you might be able to sell it to another person.

A good community is needed to help us resist the unwholesome ways of our time. Mindful living protects us and helps us go in the direction of peace. With the support of friends in the practice, peace has a chance.
