Mindfulness for Life – Mondays
May 23, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - July 11, 2022 @ 8:30 pm BST
Mindfulness for Life (sometimes referred to as MBCT-L) is a course designed to cultivate mindful awareness of our body, emotions and mind so that we can live our lives with a greater sense of wellbeing, kindness and resilience. It is an evidence-based course, developed in the light of research at Oxford University and other leading research centres.
It has two main intentions: to offer you some skills to meet life’s challenges and difficulties, both internal and external; as well as skills to develop more awareness and appreciation of the pleasant moments in life that we can often overlook. In other words, to respond more skilfully to all of life’s inevitable ups and downs.
This course is not being offered as a treatment for any specific physical or psychological conditions. Please do not sign up for this training if you are currently experiencing severe problems in these areas.
The course includes a longer Day of Practice, usually held on Saturday or Sunday towards the end of the course. This is an opportunity to deepen practice and, whilst an invaluable learning experience, does not form part of the core teaching.
Full dates: Mondays: 23/5 (finishes 20:30), 30/5, 6/6, 13/6, 20/6, 27/6, 4/7, 11/7 at 18:00-20:15 UK time. In addition we ask you to reserve 18/7 for the unlikely event that the teacher needs to reschedule a session. Day of Practice: Sunday 3 July (10:00-15:00).
What happens after I complete the course?
- You will be invited to give your feedback – this is not compulsory
- In the final session you will be given information about ways to carry your practice forwards if you wish to do so
- The OMC provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to participants who fully attend at least 7 of the 9 Mindfulness for Life sessions (including the Practice Day)
