The Wake Up London Podcast (Part of The Plum Village Tradition)

by Joe Holtaway

In the Wake Up London podcast Joe Holtaway talks with members of the Wake Up community about their lives and how Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings impact their daily life. We share music from artists within the community, and we read from Thay’s books. The Wake Up London podcast is the perfect podcast to relax and learn more about the community, whether you are at home, at work or on the road.
