The OMC is offering free weekly online mindfulness sessions facilitated by Willem Kuyken. The weekly practice sessions are intended for people who have an established mindfulness practice and wish to develop their practice further. Each week, there will be practices, talks and an opportunity to explore different themes in small groups.
In addition, on the first Wednesday of the month we host a guest speaker, a mindfulness teacher and / or researcher from around the world. The monthly guest talks are free to join, and are open to all those who feel they would benefit, meaning you do not need prior mindfulness experience or practice to take part.
The monthly guest talks will be available as a free podcast shortly after for anyone who missed the live session or wishes to practice again.
In this presentation participants will receive a brief overview of the neurobiology of mindfulness, and how this relates to a brief history of the use of art-therapy for healing in clinical and non-clinical settings. Participants will also learn a brief overview of the neurobiology of viewing abstract art, as it relates to stress reduction in clinical and non-clinical settings.
Sará will share information on her work – the development of the first awareness-based educational program and study “Art and Awareness As A Catalyst For Collective Healing” being launched at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in February of 2022. A brief art-based mindfulness practice will be offered.
