Welcome to the Mindfulness Meditation Meetup in Bedford.

This group was founded in March 16th 2012 by Per Norrgren, of inMindSight who facilitated the group's weekly meetings up until 30th of September 2014 at which point the group had some 300 members and had held some 170 meetups. The leadership of the group has been passed on to Glenis and Mark who continue to organise the sessions and facilitate the practise.

This is a meditation group for beginners and experienced mindfulness practitioners alike who wants to practice meditation regularly in an informal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

It offers a range of different meetups in the week suited to different experience levels.

The Wednesday evening meetings follow the principals of mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) meditation with emphasis on group practice and support for each other.

  • Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Guided  and Silent Meditation of the breath
  • Guided Body Scan Meditation
  • Short discussion and sharing around meditation
  • Mindful Eating Meditation
  • Meditation With Sounds / Open Awareness / or other topical practise

This a non-profit making meeting and the only cost will be sharing of the room/hall rental and optional contribution to what is used in the sessions, etc. Suggested donation of £3-£5 per person in employment and £1 for others. More is welcome, less is accepted :-).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
