The Mindfulness Association has compassion at the heart of everything it does.

We provide secular mindfulness training, based on a legacy of ancient practice, and applied for a modern society.

“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 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.

Allowing Ourselves to be Human

On Saturday 28th March I’m leading an online practice day with the theme allowing ourselves to be human. There will be the more familiar practices, plus some including a focus on our common humanity.
