About Darren



Hi there!! I’m Darren Cockburn, founder of Mindfulness Bournemouth and Mindfulness Online Training – dedicated to helping people gain more happiness and freedom through mindfulness and meditation practices.

I teach mindfulness and meditation locally here in Bournemouth. Mainly in Southbourne and occasionally in other locations like the local hospitals. I also run workshops and teach on retreats across the UK.

Mindfulness practice has transformed my life, and the lives of thousands of people I’ve had the honour of helping. I’m passionate about guiding people to live in the present moment and cultivate a peaceful mind – through books, the media, coaching, training and music. I believe mindfulness teachings work well when they’re practical, simple and clear.

I’m the author of two acclaimed mindfulness books that are published and distributed all over the world by global publishers Findhorn Press & Inner Traditions. The books are endorsed and supported by internationally leading teachers including Esther Ekhart (founder of leading yoga training organisation) and Steve Taylor (ranked 20th most living spiritually influential person in the world by Watkins Mind Body Spirit). 



Drawing upon over twenty years of mindfulness and meditation experience, I’ve enjoyed training and coaching people from organisations of all sizes including personal 121 sessions, British Wheel of Yoga teachers, Buddhist centres, hospital staff and patients, and people working at all levels in corporate businesses. Please refer to the endorsements page to hear from a few of the people I’ve helped.


Online Training

I’m founder of the Mindfulness Online Training web site and podcast where I collaborate with some of the world’s leading teachers and providing access to a range of free mindfulness resources. Recently Kindred Sprit, the UK’s leading Mind-Body-Spirit magazine nominated me for the 2019 “emerging voices” award. My work has been featured in leading mainstream magazines and I’ve supported various broadcasters including the BBC



If you decide to speak to me or meet me, you’ll realise that I’m absolutely passionate about mindfulness – it’s helped me tremendously! I’m also passionate about Bournemouth. So it’s an honour to be able to combine these two passions with Mindfulness Bournemouth. I enjoy seeing people making positive changes in their lives; suffering less and experiencing more peace and happiness 🙂
