Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World
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.
We currently offer this course in a 6-week or 8-week format in the workplace and higher education sectors in partnership with organisations. If you would like to offer bespoke courses in your organisation in partnership with the OMC, please contact us here.
