Dear Friend,

Welcome to our "Peace is the Wey of Guildford Sangha" webpage, where "Wey" is the name of the river that flows through Guildford. We practice in the Plum Village Buddhist tradition, initiated by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, affectionately called Thay (teacher). 

We are based in Surrey in the Guildford area. We are a small friendly sangha* that meet online via Zoom every Thursday at 7:15pm for a 7:30pm start (GMT). We practice together for around 90 minutes including a guided meditation, a reading, a tea meditation, sharing from the heart and deep listening (dharma sharing) and a silent meditation. Once a month we also recite the Five Mindfulness Trainings so that our practice can deepen each day.

If you are new to meditation or Plum Village practice, we are happy to give support and guidance.

We welcome everyone from the Guildford area, across Surrey and further afield to join our meetings for regular practice together.

We also hold a quarterly "Day of Mindfulness", this sometimes include a mindful and fun creative activity and also walking meditation, guided sitting meditation and a shared lunch.

Sangha members make a small dana contribution each month to cover sangha running costs.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Liz at 

You can also find out more information on our (unmonitored) Facebook page:

Please feel free to join our weekly practice. Our aspiration is to expand our little peaceful community. We welcome everyone, coming from any spiritual path, so that we can continue to deepen the practice of Mindful Living, together and contribute to create a better world.

Thank you!

A lotus to you, a Buddha to be.
