Who is this course for?
This course was created by Oxford Mindfulness Centre for people who have previously attended an 8-week mindfulness course, who would like to deepen and extend their learning.
What are the aims of the course?
The course is designed to:
- Provide a support in maintaining mindfulness practice
- Help with developing greater balance and responsiveness to everyday moments and life experiences
- Cultivate the attitudes of mindfulness to bolster wellbeing and flourishing
- Support with embedding mindfulness further into everyday life in ways that align with your values
- Provide a welcoming space for shared practice
What does this course include?
This course includes:
- 12 (2 hour) sessions involving participation in a range of guided mindfulness meditation practices and exercises
- A review of experiences and discoveries within the practices/exercises after each one
- Personal practice suggestions of up to 45 minutes, including recommended guided practices and ways to develop new habits of mindfulness in daily life.
- A 20-30 minute phone or video Orientation Call before the course to discuss what it involves in more depth, what you hope to gain from it and to decide together whether the course will be right for you at this time.
- A handout for each session of the course
- Access to guided audio recordings on a web resource so you can easily play them wherever you are
- Email and/or telephone support between sessions as needed
- A 20-30 minute phone or video call on completion of the course to review progress (optional)
- Discounted attendance at all future mindfulness and meditation Day Retreats I run to help you to maintain your practice
- Lifetime access to my Mindfulness Practice Development Community on Facebook where you can ask questions and receive ongoing support once the course has finished (optional)
I am a fully qualified and experienced MBCT teacher, trained at the University of Exeter where I was fortunate enough to receive tuition from Professor Willem Kuyken, who is now Director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre at Oxford University and highly regarded for his teaching and research.
How much does it cost to do this course?
I am committed to offering mindfulness courses at an affordable rate and so I am currently trialing offering them on a partially donation basis. The minimum charge for the course is £210, which is payable at the time of booking. You will then be invited to give an additional contribution on completion of the course. The suggested additional contribution is a further £75 for those who can afford it, but the exact amount you choose to give is at your discretion. You are encouraged to give what you feel the course has been worth for you, where you can, so that this can be a sustainable initiative.
How do I book a place on the course?
You are very welcome to contact me if you have any questions or you can arrange the initial complementary phone or video Orientation Call by completing the form that the button below takes you to. During this call we will come to a decision together about whether it seems the course would suit you and if it feels like the right time for you to start.
When will the next course be running?
I plan to run this course again in autumn 2023. If you would like to be notified of dates for future courses, then please sign up to the mailing list below:
