A word from our team

It has been our extraordinary privilege to work as part of a wonderful team in the development of the Mindfulness Association over the past decade. We were all fortunate enough to find Rob Nairn as our meditation teacher and then work with him in the setting up of the Mindfulness Association. All our lives have changed, beyond recognition, for the better, due to the practice of mindfulness, compassion and insight meditation and it our delight to share this practice with those that we teach. We hope that the resources on this website, our membership and our online and face to face offerings enable you to benefit in a similar way.
