Service Description

Course Description “Mindfulness for life” (MFL) is a new course developed by The Oxford Mindfulness Centre, which follows the same structure as the Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course: an 8-week evidence-based course providing tools and strategies to manage stress and improve mental health, as well as reducing anxiety and stress. MFL builds on this foundation in order to offer mindfulness practices and exercises that support wellbeing and flourishing to a wider audience. During this eight-week course, co-teachers Andy Phee and Barnaby Hosking will lead a group of 15 participants through a program of meditation practices and techniques tailored to offer a complete tool kit for navigating through the mental challenges that life inevitably entails. Based on modern psychology, this course offers an in-depth, experiential and up to date application of how mindfulness can benefit our lives. (Please note that Mindfulness for Life is a skills-based course rather than group therapy) What skills will you learn? • Develop a better understanding of and relationship to, the workings of your mind. • Develop skills in recognising patterns in our mental habits and to realise that there are alternatives that are more effective in helping to relieve mental suffering and further, to flourish. • To recognise early warning signs of stress, anxiety and low mood and to follow this recognition with helpful action. • To put less effort into trying to ‘fix’ things with our minds, but instead finding new ways of relating both to life’s joys and difficulties. • To be kinder and more gentle towards yourself. • To cultivate joy. Who is the course for? This course is open to anyone who seeks a structured, practical way to learn mindfulness. It asks more from participants than books, lectures or Apps, but potentially results in significantly more change in one’s life. This is partly due to the in-person support and attention, as well as the collective energy in practicing together. The MFL course is suitable for people who have experienced episodes of anxiety and depression and people who would like to reset their lives; to live more intentionally and to move forward in a healthy way. The course is appropriate for those completely new to mindfulness, as well as anyone who has tried mindfulness before but wants the structure of a comprehensive evidence-based course led by experienced teachers.
