The Heart of London Sangha is part of a UK network of practitioners, Plum Village UK – also known as the Community of Interbeing – which is associated with Thich Nhat Hanh's Plum Village Monastery in France.

We are a peer-led group. Experienced members facilitate our Mornings and Evenings of Mindfulness each week. We have a Care Taking Team with rotating membership that deals with administrative tasks.

We rely on volunteers in other ways too, for instance to set up the room and greet those arriving. If you would like to help that would be welcome.

In addition to our regular meetings we have other activities such as retreats and days in the park. Please join our email list to be kept up to date with these by occasional newsletter.

For any questions about anything please get in touch by email or just chat with us when you come along.

25th Anniversary

In 2020 Heart of London Sangha had its 25th anniversary.

We have come a long way since November 1995 when a small group of practitioners started meeting in the Tower Room of St James Picadilly church. Ever since we have offered space and structure for practice in the Thich Nhat Hanh tradition.

Members of our sangha have included Natasha, Dylan and Ben, who are now senior monastic Dharma Teachers in Plum Village – Sister True Dedication, Brother Phap Lingh and Brother Phap Lai.
