Professional Networks

The UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations represents the leading teacher training organisations in the UK and defines, upholds and disseminates practice standards. The organisation has developed a listing of UK teachers who can sign up to their Good Practice Guidelines.

The Mindfulness Network CIC aims to bring together a network of researchers, mindfulness teachers and health, education and social care professionals. Their core activities are the facilitation of public mindfulness courses and supervision for mindfulness teachers. 

Grow Mindfulness CIC is a social enterprise dedicated to supporting a UK wide community of trained mindfulness teachers. Members of the network are collaborating to develop sustainable teaching models, identify creative partnerships and secure funding to deliver courses for those most in need.

The Mindfulness Initiative is also trying to support the generation of professional networks for specifc geogrpahic and interest areas, details of which can be found below as they develop. If you work in an area not covered by an existing network and would like to be put in touch with other professionals with similar interests, please contact us.
