MORE ABOUT COURSES
Traditional MBSR/MBCT courses consist of 2-hour sessions once a week for 8 weeks, often with a whole day of practice in the second half of the course. The Oxford Mindfulness Centre has pioneered MBCT course derivatives such as Finding Peace in a Frantic World (based on the book of the same name), MBCT-L (known as Mindfulness for Life), and Taking it Further (for graduates of the 8-week course). These three courses together offer a progressive programme, with each course moving to deeper and more nuanced learning. Each course involves a commitment to a certain amount of home practice between sessions.
Follow On course: The Present. A new 7-session course to help rejuvenate your practice and bring a new perspective to your approach to mindfulness and life. This course teaches us to weave mindfulness into our everyday life. There is no requirement to commit to a particular amount of home practice for this course as it makes mindfulness and awareness training accessible to all of us. It has been written by Sarah Silverton (a well-respected trainer in the field, who was part of the pioneering team who brought MBSR/MBCT to the UK). Please do feel free to get in touch if you are interested.
