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.
These mindfulness sessions are completely free and open to the general public who have an established practice.
The first eleven sessions were recorded during the COVID-19 lockdown and offered practical guidance and support to help people manage these challenging times. They provided a space for people to experience grounding and connection at a time when solidarity was most needed.
We are continuing these sessions as a resource beyond these challenging times, offering practical tools and knowledge for participants to develop a sustainable mindfulness practice into their lives.
