About the School

Meet the British School of Meditation Course Directors

Managing our school from the front

The British School of Meditation was founded in 2011 by Mary Pearson and Helen Galpin, when they began teaching the course in Cheltenham. In 2014 they decided to expand the school and set up new centres throughout the UK. During 2020, the school began to deliver our externally accredited courses online as well as in person.

In April 2023, the schools trainers became the new co-owners. Sarah Presley, Catherine Thomlinson and Catherine Banks continue to deliver the teacher training courses and manage the day to day running of the school, as well as the growing community of registered meditation teachers. You can find out more about our co-owners on the different centre pages for the School. 

The ethos of the school and its owners are to help students create a life they love, through helping others to  improve their wellbeing. We are passionate about offering high quality training, as well as creating a community for meditation teachers. Being a British School of Meditation externally accredited teacher will help to set you apart from other meditation teachers.
