If you are unable to reach a physical group, an online or phone group can be a great way to stay connected to your mindfulness practice and feel the support of others.
Deep Listening Sangha UK is a Sangha that originally met by telephone. It first manifested 20 years ago for people who want to stay connected to the Plum Village practice (as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh) but who cannot get to a face-to-face Sangha for whatever reason.
Our practice garden has grown and we offer the following, all UK time.
· DLS Wednesday: meets on alternate Wednesdays by teleconference at 19:00-20:00.
· DLS Tuesday: meets on alternate Tuesdays by zoom at 20:30-21:30.
· DLS Sunday: meets every Sunday by zoom at 09:00-10.00.
· DLS Daily Meditation: meets Monday to Saturday by teleconference at 09:00-09:20.
We practice guided meditation, listen to a reading, and get to know each other by sharing our practice experiences. We suggest that you might want to initially join the core meetings DLS Tuesday and/or DLS Wednesday to get to know us and the Plum Village tradition practice and it is okay if this is not possible.
We would love to hear from you. Please let us know which meeting(s) you are interested in.

Sunday Sangha is an online mindfulness group that meets every Sunday at 5pm – 6pm.
The 1 hour session follows the Plum Village practices and teachings as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh.
Experienced practitioners, or Dharma Teachers, co-facilitate sessions by offering a variety of weekly mediations and topics which change and support new, fresh,‘light’ and friendly experiences.
Each session generally includes: a guided meditation, a short reading and a sharing opportunity in a ‘Breakout’ group of 4-8 persons. All practitioners are encouraged to share ‘from the heart’, by contributing to enjoyable, supportive and insightful sharings using the mindfulness practices of Deep Listening and Loving Speech.
Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome to join us.

Rainbow Sangha UK is an online Sangha for those who identify under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Intersex, Asexual +).
We meet every Tuesday at 7pm – 8.30pm.
As people identifying under this umbrella we face challenges within ourselves, and forms of discrimination in society.
We come together to meet each other, be visible, and practise together. We wish to support each other and to acknowledge our own uniqueness and connectedness. We co-create a mindful space where we can equally share our pain and our joy, and just enjoy being together.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for joining details.
