THE MINDFULNESS NETWORK
The Mindfulness Network is a registered charity. We serve the mindfulness community and general public through supervision, retreats and training courses delivered both in-person and via our online platform - the Mindfulness Network Community site. The Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) is an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences through donation-based events and opportunities to practice. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of events and inspiring content. By developing mindfulness and compassion both internally and through our services, the Mindfulness Network has the intention to reduce/alleviate human suffering, promote well-being and create the conditions in which people, communities and the planet, can flourish. We aim to bring together highly-trained mindfulness-based supervisors, retreat leaders and teacher trainers who all work within Good Practice Standards set out by the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches (BAMBA).
Breathworks is an international mindfulness organisation founded in the United Kingdom, which offers mindfulness-based approaches to living well with pain, stress, and illness. Since 2001, they have trained over 100,000 people to unlock the benefits of mindfulness and compassion practice for themselves, their patients and their communities. Breathworks also runs an accredited teacher training programme that has qualified over 600 mindfulness teachers in over 35 different countries. The organisation is committed to making mindfulness accessible and inclusive to everyone and provides bursaries and scholarships for those with financial barriers.
