Origins & Applications of Mindfulness: MBCT / MBSR Foundations

This is a closed retreat run in collaboration with Exeter and Oxford universities, and is not open to the public.

This retreat is for those currently applying or intending to apply mindfulness in their professional lives. The talks and instructions will focus on the origins of mindfulness and the place of those origins in MBCT/MBSR programmes.

It will not be teaching clinical skills but is an opportunity for a direct, experiential exploration of mindfulness in Insight Meditation.
