Course Description

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.

 

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.
  • You will be eligible to take part in the free Wednesday evening practice sessions offered by the OMC, if you wish to do so.
  • The OMC provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend our courses, confirming number of sessions attended.

 

What will I do on this course?

  • Attend 8 weekly sessions lasting 2 hours and 15 minutes. The first session is 2 hours and 30 minutes
  • After Session 6, there is also a ‘Day of Practice’ – usually 5 hours – which revisits practices introduced in the course and introduces some new practices
  • This is a structured course where each session builds upon what has been introduced before. This is why it is important to attend all the sessions
  • You will be in a group of up to 16 people, led by one of OMC’s experienced mindfulness teachers
  • Each session will have guided and structured meditation practices. Many sessions also have exercises drawn from modern psychology
  • Each practice or exercise is followed by a review of what you and/or other participants experienced or discovered in that practice/exercise. This review does not include a discussion of participants’ past history
  • Each session is followed by suggestions for personal practice of up to 45 minutes. This includes both recommended guided practices, and also ways to cultivate new habits of mindfulness in everyday life
  • Each session (except the first) includes a review of the previous week’s personal practice
  • You will have access to a web resource which gives you guided practices and written material to support each session

 

 

On this course you will learn the following skills:

  • How to ‘stabilise the attention’: to recognise mind wandering and ‘autopilot’, and how to bring the attention back to where we want it to be – with interest, patience, and care
  • Learning more about two different ways of being and knowing: through direct experience and through thinking. Understanding more about how the mind creates meaning
  • Learning to recognise our patterns of reactivity and how trying to get rid of distress may actually keep us stuck
  • Bringing a sense of care and kindness to ourselves in those moments of distress and reactivity
  • Using mindfulness to respond skilfully, not react – in ways that support the wellbeing of ourselves and of others around us
  • To ‘step back’ a little from our direct experience so that we can see it more clearly, and so choose a kinder response
  • Building what we have learnt into our everyday lives

Course Description
What skills will you learn during the MBCT-L Course?
  • MBCT is a skills-based course rather than group therapy.
  • To develop a better understanding of the workings of your mind.
  • To recognise patterns / mental habits - and realise that there are alternatives. To stand back and take a wider view of difficult thoughts and feelings.
  • To recognise early warning signs of stress, anxiety and low mood. Then take helpful action when you spot them. To put less effort into trying to 'fix' things and strive for results. To be kinder and more gentle towards yourself.
  • To cultivate joy.
  • Entry Requirements / Who is the course for?
    This course is for anyone who wants a structured, practical way to learn mindfulness. It asks more from participants, but potentially also offers more change.

    Mindfulness Series of 8 Taster Sessions - Frame by Frame with Mark Williams

    Mark Williams

    Course Description

    Join us as we host Mark Williams to offer a taste of his new course which has been developed for those who have already completed a mindfulness course and want to explore mindfulness more deeply.

    Week by week, we will focus on attention and reactivity, with special emphasis on ‘feeling tone’. Feeling tone is the moment-by-moment evaluation of whether any contact with mind or body feels pleasant, unpleasant, or neither.

    During these eight weeks we will use meditations that prepare us for, then tune in to our experience of feeling tone frame by frame, providing an opportunity to see more clearly the underlying causes of much of our distress and how to free ourselves from it.

    The 8-week course has a few breaks as we continue to offer our usual (first Wednesday of the month) Keynotes, plus one week of recap.

    You are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions however as this is a taster series, it is possible to join sessions as you are able (including joining during the series)- on the understanding that every session is typically building on knowledge from the previous weeks and therefore you benefit most from continued attendance.

    Course Description

    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.

     

    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.
    • You will be eligible to take part in the free Wednesday evening practice sessions offered by the OMC, if you wish to do so.
    • The OMC provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend our courses, confirming number of sessions attended.

     

    What will I do on this course?

    • Attend 8 weekly sessions lasting 2 hours and 15 minutes. The first session is 2 hours and 30 minutes
    • After Session 6, there is also a ‘Day of Practice’ – usually 5 hours – which revisits practices introduced in the course and introduces some new practices
    • This is a structured course where each session builds upon what has been introduced before. This is why it is important to attend all the sessions
    • You will be in a group of up to 16 people, led by one of OMC’s experienced mindfulness teachers
    • Each session will have guided and structured meditation practices. Many sessions also have exercises drawn from modern psychology
    • Each practice or exercise is followed by a review of what you and/or other participants experienced or discovered in that practice/exercise. This review does not include a discussion of participants’ past history
    • Each session is followed by suggestions for personal practice of up to 45 minutes. This includes both recommended guided practices, and also ways to cultivate new habits of mindfulness in everyday life
    • Each session (except the first) includes a review of the previous week’s personal practice
    • You will have access to a web resource which gives you guided practices and written material to support each session

     

     

    On this course you will learn the following skills:

    • How to ‘stabilise the attention’: to recognise mind wandering and ‘autopilot’, and how to bring the attention back to where we want it to be – with interest, patience, and care
    • Learning more about two different ways of being and knowing: through direct experience and through thinking. Understanding more about how the mind creates meaning
    • Learning to recognise our patterns of reactivity and how trying to get rid of distress may actually keep us stuck
    • Bringing a sense of care and kindness to ourselves in those moments of distress and reactivity
    • Using mindfulness to respond skilfully, not react – in ways that support the wellbeing of ourselves and of others around us
    • To ‘step back’ a little from our direct experience so that we can see it more clearly, and so choose a kinder response
    • Building what we have learnt into our everyday lives

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.

     

    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.
    • You will be eligible to take part in the free Wednesday evening practice sessions offered by the OMC, if you wish to do so.
    • The OMC provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend our courses, confirming number of sessions attended.

     

    What will I do on this course?

    • Attend 8 weekly sessions lasting 2 hours and 15 minutes. The first session is 2 hours and 30 minutes
    • After Session 6, there is also a ‘Day of Practice’ – usually 5 hours – which revisits practices introduced in the course and introduces some new practices
    • This is a structured course where each session builds upon what has been introduced before. This is why it is important to attend all the sessions
    • You will be in a group of up to 16 people, led by one of OMC’s experienced mindfulness teachers
    • Each session will have guided and structured meditation practices. Many sessions also have exercises drawn from modern psychology
    • Each practice or exercise is followed by a review of what you and/or other participants experienced or discovered in that practice/exercise. This review does not include a discussion of participants’ past history
    • Each session is followed by suggestions for personal practice of up to 45 minutes. This includes both recommended guided practices, and also ways to cultivate new habits of mindfulness in everyday life
    • Each session (except the first) includes a review of the previous week’s personal practice
    • You will have access to a web resource which gives you guided practices and written material to support each session

     

     

    On this course you will learn the following skills:

    • How to ‘stabilise the attention’: to recognise mind wandering and ‘autopilot’, and how to bring the attention back to where we want it to be – with interest, patience, and care
    • Learning more about two different ways of being and knowing: through direct experience and through thinking. Understanding more about how the mind creates meaning
    • Learning to recognise our patterns of reactivity and how trying to get rid of distress may actually keep us stuck
    • Bringing a sense of care and kindness to ourselves in those moments of distress and reactivity
    • Using mindfulness to respond skilfully, not react – in ways that support the wellbeing of ourselves and of others around us
    • To ‘step back’ a little from our direct experience so that we can see it more clearly, and so choose a kinder response
    • Building what we have learnt into our everyday lives

    • After Session 6, there is also a ‘Day of Practice’ – usually 5 hours – which revisits practices introduced in the course and introduces some new practices

    • Learning more about two different ways of being and knowing: through direct experience and through thinking. Understanding more about how the mind creates meaning
    • Learning to recognise our patterns of reactivity and how trying to get rid of distress may actually keep us stuck
    • Bringing a sense of care and kindness to ourselves in those moments of distress and reactivity
    • Using mindfulness to respond skilfully, not react – in ways that support the wellbeing of ourselves and of others around us
    • To ‘step back’ a little from our direct experience so that we can see it more clearly, and so choose a kinder response
    • Building what we have learnt into our everyday lives

    Course Description

    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.
