The Family Sangha is a peer-organised community gathering that meets most months.

Whether or not you have meditated before, we would love for you to join us for one of our days of mindfulness which we are currently holding once every month on a Saturday at the Wandsworth Quaker Meeting House near Clapham Junction.

You can watch a 2 minute video of one of our gatherings by clicking below:


Together we practice a guided meditation, mindful movements, dharma reading and sharing, in the tradition of Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. Children and teens will join adults for part of the day and will then have parallel programs facilitated by young people from Wake Up London.

Our aim is to create an inter-generational day of mindfulness for people of all ages to come together as a mindful family. Our experience of all age family meditation groups on retreats has been of creating wonderful connections across age groups, and we believe that children benefit from a loving, spiritual community just as much as adults do. We welcome people outside of London to join us for this event.

Please contact us to let us know if you would like to join our mailing list and find out when our next event is. People of all ages with or without children are welcome to come. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

For adults without children, we also recommend the Heart of London sangha or a local Plum Village sangha. You are of course welcome to join our inter-generational community.

We really look forward to practicing together and building connections. We’d be grateful if you could take a moment to share about us with sanghas you know, families and people of all ages who would like to participate.

A lotus for you,

Hannah and Noah
(the current facilitators)

  2. I love the Family Sangha, it is a place of joy, love and peace. This mindful community helps me to keep up with my practice and to introduce mindful living to my children. Thank you to all for creating such a nourishing, welcoming and supportive space.
