Free Online Sessions

During these challenging times we know there is a deep desire within the mindfulness community for practice and connection. 

At the Mindfulness Network, we would like to offer free mindfulness and compassion sessions to anybody who may wish to attend. We have therefore reached out to our network of experienced trainers, supervisors, retreat leads and compassion-based teachers, and have listed available sessions below Click on the name of the teacher to read more about them.

You do not have to be familiar with mindfulness practice to join. There is no need to register. The sessions are entirely free and should last around 30 minutes. Each session, unless otherwise stated, will include: 

  • 15-20 minute practice 
  • 5-10 minute teaching 
  • A short final practice to end for you to take into your day 

These free online practice sessions will be available using Zoom, an online conferencing facility which is free to download.  Please download Zoom prior to the session. (It might be helpful to have a test run to see if it works on your device). 

  • Download the Zoom app and sign in: https://zoom.us/ 
  • For support using Zoom: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us 
  • A few minutes before the session is due to start you should be able to click on the link to join the session and then mute your microphone
