Online Day of Practice – Sunday
The OMF Day of Practice offers an opportunity deepen your mindfulness practice in a supportive online group setting.
It is designed for those with an existing practice and teachers (or trainee teachers) of mindfulness-based programmes. It also forms part of what the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches (BAMBA) outlines as continued professional development.

- The day lasts for 5 hours, including a longer break in which you are invited to continue to practise while eating a meal or engaging in other activities during the break.
- You will be led by our experienced teachers with a deep knowledge of mindfulness and extended experience of leading days of practice with groups.
Learning OutcomesDevelop deeper insight into moment-by-moment experience,

About the Teacher
First, I was a corporate lawyer, qualifying as a litigator at the City firm of Linklaters in the 1990s. Then I decided to change careers, became a newspaper journalist in the 2000s, and ended up as the media editor of the Daily Telegraph. These high-pressure jobs ultimately caused me to burn out – and mindfulness became one of the essential tools in my recovery. I then completed my training to teach MBCT, at the OMC, in 2017.
