Would You Like Recordings of Your Mindfulness Practices to be Available on Our App?

If you’re a trained mindfulness teacher, we would like to offer you the opportunity to join our app and share your practices with our global audience, broadening the reach and impact of your work and showcasing your mindfulness teaching.

We are one of the global field leaders in mindfulness training but we are still a small-to-medium size charity, independent of the universities and larger institutions we work with.

As a charity, we rely on the support of the communities we engage with to achieve our mission. One way to support our work is to engage with the Oxford Mindfulness app.

If one or more of your practices is made available in our app, you will:

  • Receive full access to the paid features in the app
  • Have your teaching profile included on the app alongside your practice(s)
  • Receive the latest materials and discounts on Annual Gatherings (for OMF Trained Teachers)
  • Receive membership to our new associate programme which includes:
    • A member logo for use on your materials
    • Annual attendance at online events:
      • Two practice days
      • Two workshops
      • Two field update meetings

When to Submit Your Practice

Ideally we would like you to submit your practice by 19th July 2024 so it’s available for the launch of the app (September 2024) however we will be accepting practices all year round.

What Happens Next?

Once you have submitted your practice, it will be reviewed by our dedicated Quality Assessment Team.

If your practice is accepted, you will receive a notification with further details about your membership of the app and of our new associate programme.

Please note: Practices available on the app will be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure there is a broad range of recent and relevant content for our members. We may remove practices to make space for others, if necessary.

Practices will be available on the app as soon as they are quality-assessed and approved.

Would You Like to Join Our Quality Assessment Team?

If you would like to join our app’s Quality Assessment Team, we are currently recruiting teachers and trainers who have achieved a level of ‘proficient’ on the MBI:TAC competency assessment. If you have not been competency-assessed, we will seek two references to provide further information on your teaching level and experience.


The app will be launched in September 2024, available via the iTunes and Google Play Stores in the UK and USA. Additional countries will be added frequently after initial launch
