Weekly Update 17th September 2022
Welcome to this week’s update: a summary of everything we’ve shared on social media throughout the week.
SHARING FROM THE OMF
As part of our increased communications plan, we hope to signpost weekly to free resources, research, and books in the field. Our intention is to share knowledge of other work in the field and increase our collective understanding of mindfulness.
This week’s quote is from Jack Kornfield, who has taught meditation internationally since 1974 and is one of the key teachers to introduce mindfulness practice to the western world.
We also shared our new TikTok account.
Our Partnerships Development Officer, Ally Burton, reads a passage from the book Boundless Heart by Christina Feldman. You can listen to Ally reading the passage on YouTube by clicking on the image.
With thanks to academics in the field, we are sharing research with the OMF community. Where possible we will signpost to papers which are not behind a paywall and are free for you to read. Unless otherwise stated, research is independent from the OMF. Our intention is to share work of others in the field and increase understanding of a broad range of research areas within mindfulness. You can read more from a 2022 paper – The effect of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on rumination and a task-based measure of intrusive thoughts in patients with bipolar disorder, by clicking on the image.
