8-week MBCT programme for the public
MBCT is recommended by the UK’s National Institute of Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression. But, more importantly, it also works for the rest of us who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.
The OMC now offers an 8-week MBCT programme for the general public. Each course takes a maximum of 25 people.
The programme consists of 8 x 2 hour long group sessions, where there will be guided experiential practice and some theoretical teachings. In between sessions, there will be home practice for people to do and we estimate this takes approximately 1 hour/day. Each participant will receive guided meditation CD’s and written handouts. There is also an “all-day” practice lead as part of each programme.

Programmes take place in the evenings and run from 6.30pm – 8.30pm, unless otherwise stated. The “all-day” Saturday is from 10:00am – 4:00pm (coffee from 9:30am).
