The Mindfulness Association is a company that has been set up at the request of Rob Nairn to deliver secular mindfulness training. It is a non-profit making organisation with altruistic aims directed towards sharing the benefits of mindfulness with all of those who are interested.
Our objectives are to offer high quality trainings in Mindfulness, Compassion and Insight which help people to establish a regular and effective mindfulness practice and which help people to bring mindfulness into all aspect of their daily lives.
We aim to make our trainings accessible to as many people as possible and in particular we try to keep the prices of our courses affordable and to offer our courses at different locations around the UK and in Europe.
We also offer a comprehensive training pathway towards the teaching of Mindfulness with the aim of meeting the growing demand within the UK for mindfulness teachers.
The Mindfulness Association is also working with the University of Aberdeen in the ongoing development and delivery of its Masters Programme in Mindfulness Studies. The aim is to provide students with a high quality Masters level training in Mindfulness, Compassion and Insight and Wisdom which can then be applied by the students in their different professional settings in order to promote physical and mental wellbeing.
The board members of the Mindfulness Association are: Rob Nairn, Sean McGovern (Director), Heather Regan-Addis (Director), Norton Bertram-Smith (Director) and Vin Harris.
The Mindfulness Association offers many of its courses at Samye Ling Tibetan Centre and associated centres throughout the UK, with the aim of supporting their charitable work. To this end the Mindfulness Association is one of the founder members of Samye College.
