OMindfulness offers experiences in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction through a range of courses, residential retreats, one day workshops and online individual sessions. Whether you are able to commit to a programme of regular group sessions, want to immerse for a few days on retreat, or just need some regular support on line, we can provide guidance and assistance that is right for you.
While OMindfulness is based in the South of France we collaborate with skilled teachers and therapists in the uk who guide group sessions of mindfulness outdoors, otherwise called Forest Bathing.
“Mindfulness is good for us and anyone can do it” says Alison Prideaux, our principal trainer. “I have witnessed students derive much personal benefit from their consistent practice finding that Mindfulness can bring an end to recurrent bouts of depression, chronic pain and anxiety. Mindfulness has kept me buoyant while dealing with health challenges and thanks to Mindfulness I no longer suffer from depressive relapse, which was a lifelong condition. I am very enthusiastic about the effectiveness of this simple approach and keen to pass on the skill to help others rise above difficulty and live life to the full.”
Alison Prideaux MA PGDip, studied Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction in London in 2009 with Michael Chaskalson author of The Mindful Workplace and has been teaching since then. In 2018 she completed a 4 year postgraduate diploma with merit at Bangor University in Teaching Mindfulness Based Interventions. She has been a Vipassana meditator since 1998.
