Course Description

This course is an introduction to mindfulness and is taught in 8 weekly sessions, along with home practice. You will learn to cultivate mindfulness on two levels: First and foremost are the core mindfulness meditation practices. You will be taught a series of simple daily meditations that can be done almost anywhere. Some are as short as 3 minutes, while others may take 15 minutes. Second, mindfulness encourages you to break some of the unconscious habits of thinking and behaving that stop you living your life to the full. Many judgmental and self-critical thoughts arise out of habitual ways of thinking and acting. By breaking with unhelpful daily routines you’ll progressively dissolve some of these negative thinking patterns and become more mindful and aware. The programme is not being offered as a treatment for any specific physical or psychological conditions. It is not suitable for people who are currently experiencing very severe problems in these areas.

Entry Requirements / Who is the course for?

This course is for students at the University of Oxford who want 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 a certified teacher. To verify your student status at the University of Oxford, please enter your College email address when filling in the online application form.  

You will be asked to obtain a copy of the course text, “Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World”, by Mark Williams and Danny Penman.
