The Retreat Bursary

Retreats are an essential requirement for teachers of mindfulness-based approaches (MBAs) to meet good practice guidelines. The Retreat Bursary Fund is used to support mindfulness-based trainees and teachers at key stages in their development to attend retreats.

Bursaries will be awarded after a thorough application process. Applicants for our bursaries need to meet the following criteria:

  • the applicant is a trainee teacher who meets or who is working towards meeting the BAMBA Guidelines for Mindfulness-based Teachers. Annual retreats are an essential requirement for teachers of mindfulness-based approaches (MBAs) to meet good practice guidelines.
  • the applicant has a clear need of financial support
  • the service is essential for them to progress

We will give particular priority to applicants who can demonstrate that their work will support equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), in line with our EDI Policy and who have plans for the financial sustainability of their future work.
