Mindfulness in Action
Mindfulness in Action is based in Cardiff and since 2010 we’ve taught many mindfulness courses and other events, gradually developing our work with individuals, leaders and organisations, schools and community groups. Our vision is offering mindfulness and the values that support it for the whole of society.
Our work is expanding all the time, and we’re currently developing a range of long-term mindfulness projects in collaboration with the Wales Probations Service and other leading public sector organisations.
The founders have practised mindfulness and meditation for many years and we aim to teach with warmth and integrity. For that reason, we’re committed to practising mindfulness ourselves and following the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers Good Practice Guidelines
