Who we are

We are a growing network of people in the UK who practise mindfulness and aspire to develop peace and happiness in ourselves and in the world by living according to the teachings on global ethics of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.  His teachings, which can be followed by people of all ages and any religion or none, are notable for their emphasis on joy, engagement in the world, and integrating the practice of mindfulness into daily life.

What we do

The COI is, a registered educational charity which offers a programme of courses and events and encourages and supports local groups (called Sanghas) that meet to practice mindfulness.
