Compassion is at the heart of everything we do

We are a welcoming and compassionate organisation offering information about mindfulness and a wide range of courses that support people in their training and practice in mindfulness, compassion and insight.

We believe that Mindfulness is a way of life and not a brief intervention for relieving symptoms. Our unique compassion-based mindfulness courses are for life. Our Mindfulness courses cater for beginners, experienced practitioners, those that want to train to teach Mindfulness and experienced teachers

We have a members community, a mindfulness for life programme with some great retreats and a continuing professional development program for all the teachers out there.

Scroll through our latest courses or use the links below to find the course for you. Our team have decades of experience. The Mindfulness Association is a member of the British Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches (BAMBA), all our tutors adhere to BAMBA’s good practice guidelines and are listed on the BAMBA listing of mindfulness teachers and our teacher training meets the requirements of the BAMBA good practice guidelines.

“The Mindfulness Association really has a great long legacy and history behind it. There is no better organisation that knows these practices, which go back thousands of years, and can apply them in modern society. Amongst any other options, I would always go with this association. Everything I have learned from them has made me feel that even more”

A Word from Our Founders

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.

Watch the documentary about the Mindfulness Association as it celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

We raised over £2000 in donations to the Everyone Project, which will enable many people to benefit from Mindfulness, who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity. If you would like to contribute to the donations please go the The Everyone Project website and click on the donate button.

The weekend was free to all our members. There is another free weekend coming up 24-25th October.

It costs just £10 for a 6 month trial to the membership – which means you can then join the retreat for free.  Go to our members page for more information or join now.

Come practice with us and make the world a better place!
