Promoting Cultural Intelligence through Mindfulness Practice

Highlighted in the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group Report “Mindful Nation UK”.  The importance, application and delivery of Mindfulness Based Interventions in the context of socio-economically deprived and ethnically diverse urbanised demographic communities requires significant improvement.

Consequently, The Urban Mindfulness Foundation are focused on developing ways to address the requirements as highlighted in the Parliamentary Report to ensure Mindfulness Training can be delivered authentically to a more diverse audience that represents Urban life.

We also aim to encourages people from an ever widening demographic to both practice and learn to teach Mindfulness across all cultural, religious, ethnic and socio-economical divides.

Ultimately there is a wish that this venture  leads to greater cultural intelligence and harmonious inter-connectivity that alleviates some of the suffering of division we see in the world today. If you would like to work with us please contact us on

All our courses are offered on a suggested donation basis and concessionary discount codes are offered to those who are unable to meet the suggested donation. If you require a concessionary discount code please email us at
