Through cultivating mindfulness, the Mindfulness Network has the intention to reduce human suffering, promote well-being and create the conditions in which people can flourish. Around this shared intention we aim to bring together a network of highly trained mindfulness-based supervisors, teachers and retreat leaders to offer:
- empirically supported mindfulness-based courses to all regardless of economic, social, religious or political boundaries; and
- personal and professional development opportunities for mindfulness-based course teachers to support them to work within recognised Good Practice Standards. The Mindfulness Network brings together an associate team of experienced teachers and supervisors with the intention of offering services that are supportive to the mission of the university centres but which sit more easily in a not for profit company.
Our associates have all been highly trained, undergo rigorous recruitment processes in order to join our team, and are committed to engaging in ongoing updating and good practice.
Our work supports the mission of the UK Network for Mindfulness-based Teachers Training Organisations http://mindfulnessteachersuk.org.uk/ which upholds and disseminates good practice standards for teachers of eight-week courses which originate from Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction.
We aim to offer services at rates that are affordable with the intention of supporting mindfulness teachers across the UK and beyond to engage in their work with the highest levels of integrity. We are particularly interested in supporting teachers who are working with hard to reach communities. To this end we have flexible pricing structures which enable those who can afford it to contribute funds which support those on low income.
