Coronavirus

LAST UPDATED 25th March, 2020 at 3pm – We will update this website weekly by Friday 3pm. Please keep checking back for details as we continue to move our events online where possible and add any additional events that we plan to offer in response to these unprecedented times.  

As a team, The Mindfulness Network have taken time to sit together and reflect on how the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) affects us all. We recognise the difficulties and concerns that you will have in attending our events. We wanted to send our heartfelt well-wishes to each of you and your families as we navigate this time together with an even greater sense of shared humanity.

The Mindfulness Network have taken the decision to step back from holding any face-to-face events for at least the next three months until the end of June. Instead we will endeavour to move events online or offer forward credit towards a future event. This is outlined in more detail by clicking on our FAQs, below.

We are also offering FREE online practice sessions for those wishing to practice and connect during these challenging times. For a list of these sessions please visit: https://www.mindfulness-network.org/free-online-practice-sessions/

Our dedicated team are working hard to sensitively respond to queries and cancellations. We are a charity with a small team of part-time staff and are also affected by sickness so please do consider this as we continue to operate. We have deep appreciation for the generosity of individuals and the patience of all during this time. 

Frequently Asked Questions


Please get in touch via info@mindfulness-network.org if you have any concerns in the meantime. We will endeavour to respond as promptly as we are able to. 

Stay safe and well.
