Retreat Bursaries

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.

We have recently started our appeal for donations to our Retreat Bursary Fund and will be able to offer bursaries – in line with our bursary policy. More information about applying will be available soon.

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 UK 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 s/he 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.


Please consider donating to us

We rely on the generosity of donors to be able to offer retreat and other bursaries. In line with our mission, The Mindfulness Network is committed to ensuring that our services are as accessible and inclusive as possible. Part of our vision involves removing financial barriers, as much as we can, by offering bursaries so that people from all backgrounds can afford to train to be mindfulness-based teachers, receive supervision and attend mindfulness retreats.

Your contribution will enable us to widen access to mindfulness, and so will transform lives.

We have created four funds for which we welcome donations:
