The aim of this course is to promote awareness of your mind and body through the cultivation of mindful awareness. It is suitable for people wishing to enhance their general physical and mental wellbeing. If you are experiencing stress, anxiety, recurrent depression or feel generally dissatisfied with your life, this course could offer you some skills in how better to respond to the ups and downs of everyday living. The programme is not being offered as a treatment for any specific physical or psychological conditions. It is not suitable for people who are currently experiencing very severe problems in these areas.

For teaching quality purposes we occasionally video record our course sessions. We will direct the camera only at the teachers but class discussions will be audible. The recordings are used for internal purposes only. Please feel free to speak with the teacher, if you have any concerns about this.
Following the submission of your pre-course questionnaire, you may be contacted by the Course Lead to discuss if the course is appropriate for you to attend at this time. If you mutually decide that it is not, you will be refunded in full.
At the OMC, an important part of our work is scientific research to improve our understanding of mindfulness and how it works. Course attendees, such as yourself, form an important part of this research, as an opportunity to directly look at the impact of mindfulness on people’s lives.
If you are willing to take part in research, you will be sent some short questionnaires electronically, to complete just before, and immediately after the course. You fill these in from home, and send them back by a set deadline. If you are willing, we will also send similar questionnaires in the months after the course, to investigate longer-term impacts of mindfulness. If you decide to take part, you will be free to withdraw at any time without giving a reason.
If you wish to be contacted by our research team, please tick the box below. Then, if you are accepted onto the course, the research team will be sent the contact information you have provided on this form (and nothing else). This will allow them to get in touch with further information. By ticking the box, you are only registering interest, and are not committing yourself in any way.
