  • Welcome to the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF)
    We know there is a deep desire within the mindfulness community for practice and connection. Rather than being a club with a membership, being a Community Friend is an open invitation to everyone and you do not need to have taken a course with the Mindfulness Network or register to be part of the community. 

    To find out how we can support your mindfulness practice or training, please take a look around our free, public spaceIn particular, you will find details of the weekly and monthly events and practice sessions on the calendarAll MNCF events are freely offered so please donate what you feel you can or just attend.

    The ambition is for this to be a thriving hub where you can connect and practice, ask questions, share and support each other. The space is yours and we welcome ideas for any mindfulness practice sessions and events you would like us to offer. 

    A warm welcome to everyone,  we look forward to connecting with you.

    About the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF)

    Created in 2021, the MNCF is the voluntary wing of the Mindfulness Network. It is an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences through free and donation-based events and opportunities to practice. Led by a Committee of dedicated Volunteers, and supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to offer day, evening, weekend sessions and events including (for those who are new to and familiar with mindfulness) specialized groups such as the MGM men's group, practice sessions in English and Mandarin, online silent retreats, opportunities for teachers in training to practice teaching, and developments at the Mindfulness Network and Bangor University.

    >> Meet the Committee


    These sessions are completely free and open to all. If you would like to make a donation, no matter how small, this would be gratefully received so that we can continue offering practice opportunities for the mindfulness community and help fund our bursaries, which will make a big difference in making mindfulness-based approaches more accessible to people from all backgrounds and locations. Please visit our donations page https://home.mindfulness-network.org/donate/ 

    The Mindfulness Network and its volunteers take every care in their preparation of events to make sure they are appropriate for the audience. Please be aware that you are choosing to participate in our freely offered events at your own risk. We invite you to carefully consider your own personal circumstances and experience when joining these events. The Mindfulness Network Terms and Conditions apply (though payment and cancellation policies are not relevant for freely offered Events) and the Mindfulness Network can not accept any liability for any injury, loss or damage, suffered during or in relation to the event, however this may be caused.

    If you are an experienced Mindfulness-Based trainer, supervisor, or teacher and would like to volunteer to join the committee, run group practice sessions, or offer to support sessions and events please send an email to communityfriends@mindfulness-network.org

    We also welcome Mindfulness-Based teachers in training and experienced practitioners who would like to volunteer for behind-the-scenes support for online zoom sessions, and other administrative functions.
