Drop-ins All day retreats
Events to support the development of mindfulness teachers and people interested in mindfulness. These include events lasting from one day up to a week and are typically led by nationally and internationally renowned speakers, as well as by local mindfulness teachers with particular areas of expertise.
These events support the development of people interested in compassion-oriented approaches, such as Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living (MBCL).
SMC Annual Conference 2018
Friday 21st Sept 2018, Sussex Education Centre in Hove
The theme of our 2018 conference was community mindfulness: staying connected, local and accessible. We had workshops, mindfulness practice, discussions and short talks led by mindfulness teachers, researchers and service users. View the programme.
SMC Annual Conference 2019
Saturday 23 March and Sunday 24 March 2019 in Hove
This will be in collaboration with other mindfulness centres in the UK who are hoping to hold parallel conferences on the same dates. The conference will coincide with an international mindfulness conference in South Africa from where we are hoping to live stream two keynote talks, including from Jon Kabat Zinn.
The Saturday will be a day of talks and discussion, with time for networking and spending time together as a mindfulness community. The Sunday will be a day of practice.
*Please note, that we had previously advertised the conference as running from 22-26 March 2019 but this has been changed due to unforeseen changes to the funding arrangements.
We are not currently taking bookings for the 2019 conference as it is too far in advance, but you can register your interest.
