Online – Thursday 8 week course: Finding peace in a Frantic World

March 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - April 22, 2021 @ 7:30 pm UTC

£180

Susie Stead is a freelance mindfulness teacher, trained and certified by the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC) and is registered with The British Association for Mindfulness Based Approaches (BAMBA).

OMC Teaching Partner Susie Stead runs a regular mindfulness drop-in in Headington (now on-line)

This programme is based on the best-selling book, Mindfulness: Finding Peace in Frantic World. It is a highly accessible, engaging and practical introduction to mindfulness. We have developed a programme that teaches mindfulness skills and how to use these skills to improve wellbeing and resilience to stress. It has been found to be effective with adults in workplaces, University students and school teachers.

The course’s themes include: waking up to the life you have, gathering the scattered mind, relating differently to thoughts and worries, practising kindness, and nourishing activities.

This course is for anyone who wants a structured, practical, and highly accessible introduction to mindfulness. It is appropriate for people new to mindfulness, anyone who has tried mindfulness apps or perhaps read a book and wants the structure of a course led by an experienced teacher.

Dates: Thursday evenings, March 4th – April 22nd from 6.00pm to 7.30pm. There will also be a half day retreat on Saturday April 10th.
