Mindfulness Conference UK


Venue to be confirmed (Brighton area)

22 - 26 March 2019

About Us

Building on the success of conferences hosted by the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP), a number of mindfulness organisations have come together to form a partnership to host a collaboratively held UK-wide mindfulness conference every two years.  This will draw on the expertise and experience of previous conferences arranged by all the partners and bring together a wider group of mindfulness teacher training organisations to share in conference planning and organisation. This conference with a wider range of partners will replace the CMRP conference, and in this first year is being led by Clara Strauss at the Sussex Mindfulness Centre in partnership with Sharon Hadley’s Event Management Company – Project HA Ltd.

The next conference will be held between Saturday 23 March – Monday 25 March 2019 (inclusive) in Brighton/elsewhere in Sussex (venue tbc), with pre- and post-conference workshops held on Friday 22 March and Tuesday 26 March 2019.

We are in the process of finalising the programme, and we invite you to hold the dates in your diary. It promises to be a great gathering. You can register you interest through the following link: https://mindfulnessconferenceuk.eventbrite.co.uk

"Grateful to have this space to focus in various ways on mindfulness.  My first conference that is all about mindfulness."
"Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable conference where my knowledge and understanding deepened and my meditation practice developed.  I feel enlightened."
"A wonderfully well balanced programme with plenty of practice and the heart of mindfulness and dharma as well as the science, theory, achievements.  The atmosphere was great. "
"This was truly the best, most inspiring, thought provoking, fun, friendly, formal yet informal and approachable conference I’ve ever been to.  The days were quite long (I commuted in so it was a long 3 days) but the quality of the conference made that worthwhile.  AMAZING!"
"This conference has been inspirational.  I look forward to taking back all that I have learned and applying it in daily and work life.  Thank you so much for all of your work setting up this conference."
"Thank you, it was wonderful to meet JKZ in person, but actually, the place was buzzing with so many inspirational people, JKZ was in good company.  A perfect fusion.  I have come away with so much food for thought, new contacts and a renewed commitment to my practice.  A real inspiration and privilege to be there."
"This conference was life changing.  The dedication and work that goes to the core of our lives is incredible. "
"I was amazed that 500 or 600 people could be in that big room, and instead of feeling crowded there was a beautiful sense of support and connection and serenity. "
"Thank you for all your tremendous hard work, it really paid off.  I found the event both of great interest, varied topics and excellent speakers, and a wonderful reconnection and inspiration for my own practice and teaching. "
"An exceptional achievement – I’d like to thank you all as it has re-engaged my commitment to my involvement with mindfulness."
"To all of you involved in the organisation of the conference – the organisation, the collaboration and the presentation - a huge thank you, it was inspirational and brought the heart of the work to mind and heart."
"Hotel staff were almost unfailingly helpful, polite, flexible and went beyond their remit to help out when asked."
"It was truly a great event to participate at."
"Thank you for a great experience with outstanding contributors.  Wonderful that they came, presented and stayed around as participants, rather than flying in and out."
"Very well organised for such a large conference.  Seamless"
