BRITISH ASSOCIATION FOR MINDFULNESS-BASED APPROACHES (BAMBA)
Good Practice Guidelines
BAMBA evolved from the UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations as it adapted to developments in field of mindfulness in the UK. The UK Network dates back to 2005, when mindfulness teachers from the Universities of Bangor, Oxford and Exeter and from Breathworks CIC and NHS Scotland, all of whom had been developing training programmes in response to the growing demand for well-qualified teachers, came together to form a collaborative network to explore ways of working together to support and help shape the development of mindfulness in the UK.
EUROPEAN ASSOCIATIONS FOR MINDFULNESS
EAMBA’s mission is to be a network connecting and inspiring associations (and associations in progress) of mindfulness professionals working with evidence-based secular programs. Mindfulness is a mode of being, which includes awareness, through attention being addressed to the body and mind, of new, wholesome perspectives of oneself and others, thus bringing greater wisdom and compassion to oneself and society.
