A place to slow down and relax in an oasis of peace in the city, and connect with like-minded people at our events for educators, leaders and environmental activists.
The Mindfulness Hub will be run by monks and nuns trained directly by Thich Nhat Hanh. They will share his teachings on mindfulness, engaged Buddhism, global ethics, and his compassionate, insightful responses to the most challenging issues of our times.
The monks and nuns will offer early morning sitting meditations, mindful lunches, guided relaxation sessions and workshops, for local mindfulness communities, and special events for those working in social enterprises, social workers and corporate organisations, teachers and environmentalists.
There will also be a number of events especially for those who practise with their local sanghas (groups who practise mindfulness in the Plum Village tradition). Please see Heart of London and Wake Up London websites for more information.
Early morning sitting meditations and mindful Bring Your Own (BYO) lunches are free and do not require tickets (donations welcome but totally optional).
Wheelchair access is available and blind & visually impaired people are also very welcome – please contact us to let us know when you will be coming so we can greet you suitably. Unfortunately we were unable to obtain a hearing loop for the hub.
The London Mindfulness Hub is a collaborative venture between Plum Village monks and nuns, the Wake Up London community of young mindfulness practitioners, and the Heart of London all-ages sangha, with support from the UK Community of Interbeing (a registered charity).
Thank you everyone who donated to the crowdfunding campaign and made this possible.
Our exciting long-term vision is to create a sustainable model for urban mindfulness practice hubs which can be run collaboratively on a non-profit basis by residential practitioners. If you would like to support this Mindfulness Hub and the intention for future hubs you can donate here.
