Established by Rob Nairn in 2008, the Mindfulness Africa network is a group of mindfulness practitioners dedicated to assisting people enhance their own well-being and the well-being of others. Mindfulness is learning to pay attention to our moment-by-moment experience with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. The progressive training results in a deepening awareness and compassion.  We become more resilient to the ups and downs of everyday life.

Mindfulness Africa offers training in mindfulness and mindful movement:

  • to deepen awareness and compassion,  and
  • to neutralise the negative effects of stress.
