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.

Mindfulness Association 10th Anniversary Weekend

I hope you were able to take part in our 10th Anniversary celebrations at the weekend. Attendees were able to enjoy 2 days full of practice and guided sessions which included a Preview of 10th Anniversary documentary, a talk by Lama Yeshe, Engaged Mindfulness, Mindfulness Based Inclusion approach, Mindful Consuming, Buddhist approach to compassion with Choden and An Adventure Waiting to Happen.

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. Watch out for future benefits and free practice sessions for members. 

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!
