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 8-session course to help rejuvenate your practice and bring a new perspective to your approach to mindfulness and life. This course teaches us to recognise what, when and how we are aware of our experiences in 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 developed 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.
