Free Online Mindfulness Sessions & Introductory Course
The COVID-19 pandemic is perhaps the most significant global challenge of this generation. Our frontline healthcare staff are providing the best physical care they humanly can to those suffering from this disease, and our best scientists are working hard to provide us with treatments and vaccines to help us fight it too. As well as the virus’ effects on health, it is also wreaking another kind of havoc, on mental health and well-being.
The University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre is offering weekly online mindfulness sessions, as well as an online introductory mindfulness course, open to all who feel they would benefit. Both are completely free and suitable for those who have no prior knowledge or experience of mindfulness. Each weekly session will also be available as a free podcast shortly after for anyone who missed the live session or who wants to practice again.
We hope our online course and weekly sessions can offer a space for people to experience grounding and connection, discuss the challenges faced, and support each other at a time when solidarity is needed most.
