The Mindfulness Tree was founded by Dr Michael Roberts in 2018. It seeks to create secular mindfulness communities across the UK, where people can experience the joys and benefits of regular mindfulness practice, supported by one another.
Trees are traditional places for communities to gather, and we currently support two communities in Coventry and Rugby, with a vision of many more in the future.
Michael trained to teach with Suryacitta Malcolm Smith (“The Happy Buddha”).
He completed PhD research on mindfulness-meditation at the University of Birmingham (2014-2019), examining the ways that meditation can enhance people’s self-understanding.
