Our unique approach strips away the fluff and vagaries around mindfulness and cuts to the chase, teaching you how to bring intense presence to your own life, let go of unhelpful patterns and move toward psychological wholeness.
The latest research suggests that it takes around 11 hours of mindfulness meditation to begin eliciting physical changes in the brain. As a beginner, the weekend Mindfulness Intensive™ will give you these essential hours of practice, as well as the knowledge of how to meditate for the rest of your life. It is without a doubt one of the most affordable and effective ways to learn mindfulness, and we guarantee you will leave with the ability to meditate. If you already meditate, this is a chance to deepen your skills, focus intensely on specific areas, and learn some advanced techniques from a mix of traditions, as well as those developed by Open Meditation.
This type of transformation requires work and dedication, but we'll be guiding you through the entire process. The weekend is 100% experiential, so the majority of time is spent meditating. To make the process exciting and engaging, we've created a carefully-designed narrative to guide you through your inner journey and provide an essential framework. This framework is unique to Open Meditation and draws on a multidisciplinary range of sources, from psychology and myth to shamanism and neuroscience. The next weekend will be held on September 27th and 28th, 2014 in our beautiful new studio at Unit 8 Chandlery House, 40 Gower's Walk, London E1 8BH (Map available on open-meditation.org). We'll be going home on Saturday night and coming back on Sunday morning rather than sleeping over. Included in the cost is lunch on both days and an endless supply of tea, biscuits and fruit.
A Mindfulness Intensive™ is transformative, empowering and more affordable than an 6 or 8 week course. The Weekend Intensive costs £245 for the two days, which includes a vegetarian lunch on both days. We run our intensives based on demand and lists fill up quickly, so if you'd like to secure your space sign up here with a deposit, with full payment not due until 22nd of September.
