The London Centre for Mindfulness (LCfM) was founded by a group of like-minded long term meditators with a desire to help spread the benefits of meditation to the wider community. Most of the founders have a long relationship with Jamyang Buddhist Centre. However it is the intention of LCfM to offer mindfulness courses in a non-religious framework.
To this end the LCfM is not part of Jamyang Buddhist Centre but of a related charity – the Courthouse Community Centre (CCC) which for many years has been successfully organising community projects, such as a popular respite service for local carers.
The LCfM is currently offering 8 week Mindfulness for Stress Reduction courses on and off site. It also offers taster sessions and meditation sessions in the workplace, schools and local sheltered accommodation.The aim is to enable many more to experience the benefits of the programme from all sections of the community.
