OMC Masterclasses

Masterclasses at the OMC are directed by leaders in their field, within mindfulness training, teaching and research.

We run a series of events throughout the year as the OMC to offer continuing professional development in teaching mindfulness in specialist areas. The events may be of interest to mindfulness teachers as well as those wishing to find out more about recent developments in particular fields of interest. Some of our events are offered in partnership with others.

The Oxford Mindfulness Centre and the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice Bangor University have collaborated to jointly offer a Mindfulness in the Workplace Masterclass series. Click here for more information on this series.
