CCN – Contemplative Consciousness Network – is a UK based charity, with an international network, dedicated to the development and practice of contemplative science. Contemplative Science, a term coined by Dr B Alan Wallace, is the bridge between the empirical study of the science of consciousness and the subjective, experiential study of consciousness through contemplation.

Our network promotes the study of contemplative science:

  • By running a range of events through the year including residential retreats and workshops led by Alan Wallace
  • Promoting dialogues between scientists and contemplatives
  • Monthly study group in London & an informative newsletter.
  • Organise workshops and talks led by other contemplatives, attended by people from all over the UK and Europe.

CNN has no religious affiliation, but draws on wisdom traditions that have contemplative practice, such as Buddhism, Vedanta & Christianity. Our network is made up of people from all walks of life, including many from the mindfulness movement. Our shared interest is to find genuine happiness, mental and emotional balance and flourishing for ourselves and our communities.

The General Fund supports the General Administration of CCN & acts as a buffer when extraordinary costs emerge.
