Do you sometimes hit a ‘low’? Do unwanted thoughts and feelings pop up? Are you feeling worn down or worked up or wondering why you are at Oxford? Intrigued by how to use the mind better? Are you ready to grow? This is a course about three big things:
Awareness: wellness begins with awareness. This course explains how to develop a sense of detachment to observe thoughts and feelings without judgement. You will understand why meditation helps and sample various approaches (don’t worry, no chanting ‘om!’)
Reflection: The course provides a picture of why we have thoughts and how they relate to feelings. We see how to ‘follow the story’ of a thought and discover the roots of our feelings.
Change: Using a simple framework we gain a practical approach to changing habits of thought, feeling and action, so that awareness and reflection can be translated into change
This course will be delivered over 6 one-hour sessions online, from 1100-1200 on the following dates:
