Mindfulness at the University of Exeter

Mindfulness has been an important part of the University of Exeter since 2004. Our work centres around three overlapping areas:

  1. Training
  2. Research
  3. Clinical Work

We tend to think of it as a three legged stool with each area having its distinct features with strong overlaps. Mindfulness spans across the work of different teams within the University as well as our core staff and a strong network of associate mindfulness-based teachers.

As part of a collaboration between UK Mindfulness Centres, the University of Exeter is delighted to announce a new training opportunity in association with the Sussex Partnership Trust. This training is aimed for staff in Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services to train as Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) teachers.
