Amidst the challenges of our times, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and discouraged in the work we do. This day is specifically for people working on social, environmental and political causes, and anyone in pursuit of a better world.

We will hear from the Plum Village monastics and leading changemakers about how mindfulness and meditation can increase our energy and effectiveness for social transformation.

End of Year Be-In🎄

We would like to warmly invite you all to our end-of-year Be-In next Saturday, the 17th of December. The Be-In will begin at 6pm and will be held after our usual Wake up session. We will start with a mindful dinner (bring a small vegan dish to share). If you have a song, poem, reading or anything you’d like to share with the community this will be an opportunity for us to be together and enjoy the creativity that is present in our Sangha.

We welcome all London Sanghas to join us for this celebration! Our facilitators will take names at the start of our session for those who would like to share. We will try to give everyone an opportunity, but we would like to ask for your understanding that we may only have time for a limited amount of sharings/performances when we are with many.

We hope to see you all next weekend!

Date: Saturday, December 17th | 6PM – 9PM
