Shaun Glossop, Our Lead Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher

Shaun Glossop
Group Director & Principal Teacher

Shaun Glossop is a meditation and mindfulness teacher based here in the East Midlands. He’s the Director and co-founder of the Nottingham Mindfulness Group.

Shaun teaches meditation and mindfulness widely in our local area, as well as teaching both nationally and internationally. His professional roles include leading mindfulness classes and courses for people whose lives have been impacted by cancer (which he does at the renowned Maggie’s Cancer Centre at Nottingham's City Hospital) and he also teaches meditation and mindfulness classes to support those who are in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction (which he does for the local authority recovery services in both Nottingham and Lincolnshire).

Shaun is a certified MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) coach and teacher. He trained in this capacity at the Nottingham Centre for Mindfulness, which is one of the few Mindfulness teacher-training centres in Britain that is run by the NHS - it specialises in training Mindfulness teachers who are equipped to work with people experiencing mental health issues such as depression and anxiety in an effective and therapeutic way, both within the health service and in private practice, in accordance with the principles required by public mental health services and in-line with N.I.C.E. (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidance.

Shaun has practised meditation personally for over 25 years. He has a wide-ranging and in-depth familiarity with a number of different meditation traditions and styles, including Buddhist, Vedic, Tantric, and Jewish/Christian meditation. He's also thoroughly versed in today’s contemporary, more secular (and science-based) approaches. He has taught meditation and mindfulness professionally since 2014, during which time he’s taught in excess of 10,000 people, both publicly and privately. He has been a guest lecturer on meditation and mindfulness at Nottingham Trent University and he’s appeared several times in the press and on both tv and radio in his capacity as a respected meditation teacher and as a spokesperson for mindfulness and meditation. He's also a featured teacher in the celebrated Feast For The Soul annual 40-day global meditation event.

Shaun is noted for his warm, welcoming and friendly personality, his wide-ranging knowledge about meditation and mindfulness, and his very grounded, down-to-earth, and easy to understand teaching style.
