The Highland Mindfulness Group is a charitable organisation that provides beginner’s mindfulness courses and support, motivation and continued training in all aspects of mindfulness meditation to anyone who has completed basic mindfulness training whether through a standard 8 week course (MBSR, MBCT, MBLC, Breathworks course etc) or any other route.

Initially the group came into existence as a graduate group designed to meet the needs of people who had attended NHS Highland courses and who wished to continue their practice. Its continuing links with the NHS mean that it will remain a secular group unattached to any religious movement or lineage. Whilst its does not affiliate to any religion, it does of course welcome those with religious beliefs, and seeks to enhance the spiritual experience of people from religious backgrounds.

The Group tries to meet its aims by organising courses, follow on or graduate groups, by arranging study days on a great variety of topics, silent meditation practice sessions, days of silent practice, mindfulness walks and retreats depending on the demand. Increasingly it is also being asked to run beginner’s mindfulness courses and courses in more advanced meditation techniques.

In May 2020, the Highland Mindfulnes Group became a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Any donations are welcome and these help us to continue organising mindfulness sessions, to teach and to facilitate meditation practices. Where a charge is to be made, e.g. for courses or a residential retreat, the amount will be clearly stated on the introductory information and arrangements can be made to help those on low income.

For details of events please refer to the “What’s on” page on this website. No formal membership is required and anyone who is interested should make contact with the group through the email address highlandmindfulness@gmail.com.

The Highland Mindfulness Group SCIO is a team effort involving Allan, Brigid, Catherine, Diana, Elke, Jan, Kate, Liz, Meg, Peter, Rona and Val as facilitators, with Christine and Daniel helping with admin.
