Mindfulness & Meditation
Mindfulness is a therapeutic technique that can help you manage and prevent feelings of depression, stress, anxiety, or discontent. It enables anyone who practices it to live a more attentive, appreciative and vibrant life.
Considering the difficult times currently faced amid the Coronavirus pandemic, the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC) is offering weekly online mindfulness sessions, open to those who feel they would benefit.
These sessions are completely free and open to the general public, meaning you do not need prior mindfulness experience or practice to take part. Each session will also be available as a free podcast shortly after for anyone who missed the live session or wishes to practice again.
We understand that for many this pandemic brings great worry and uncertainty in many aspects of their lives and hope that by offering these online sessions they provide some practical guidance and support to help people manage these challenging times.
