Welcome to York MBSR

The Northern Centre for Mindfulness and Compassion

"Our aim is to provide the highest levels of professional support backed by cutting-edge research and scientifically proven methods, whilst retaining the wisdom of ancient healers."


Mindfulness meditation has been shown to be beneficial in managing a variety of health concerns such as stress, anxiety, high blood pressure,  IBS, CFS/ME, fibromyalgia and depression, as well as promoting general  physical and emotional wellbeing.

The York MBSR team are committed to the research, training and practice of mindfulness meditation and offer a wide range of courses, retreats, workshops and events throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region.   

Our mindfulness courses offer you an opportunity to take an active approach to looking after your mind by learning to meditate in a non-religious setting. 

We currently teach Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses in York, Leeds, Harrogate, Doncaster, Darlington, Hull and Beverley.  We also offer Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) courses, which are recommended in NHS guidelines for the treatment of recurrent depression, in York and Hull.   

Our MBSR and MBCT personal courses remain at the heart of what we do, but the wide range of services we provide beyond this is constantly evolving.  Our work is currently focused in four main areas: Mindful Living (courses for individuals from complete beginners to those with an established meditation practice); Mindfulness in Healthcare; Mindfulness in Schools and Mindfulness in the WorkplacePlease follow the links or contact us to find out more.
