Quarterly Day of Mindfulness


The quarterly Day of Mindfulness is an opportunity for people who have done the course, and the teachers of the course, to come together to spend a day practicing meditation. Over the course of the day, we will spend most of the time in silence, and some time sharing our experience. You will be led through various meditations including sitting, walking, and stretching. There will also be time spent in the beautiful surrounds ... light, birds and trees.

This day of meditation training provides time and space for focused practice which can refresh mindfulness skills and strengthen ongoing practice at home.

Openground MBSR Graduates can register for our Day of Mindfulness Events


Openground Practice Groups


At the end of the eight week course most people feel the desire to continue engaging in the practice with some support. Your teacher will be able to let you know what options are available in your area.
Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane offer ongoing mindfulness meditation practice groups. These are drop in groups so there is no need to register.

Secular Buddhist practice groups


The MBSR program you have been exploring comes directly from the four foundations of mindfulness, from the Western Insight tradition. There are many secular Buddhist groups offering ongoing practice and exploration which would deepen what you have been learning in the MBSR course.

These groups also offer longer retreats. Here are a few leads for you to explore:

Insight meditation

Insight (Vipassana) meditation is the simple and direct practice of moment-to- moment mindfulness. Through careful and sustained observation, we experience for ourselves the ever-changing flow of the mind/body process. This awareness leads us to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that life inevitably brings. As insight deepens, we develop greater equanimity and peace in the face of change, and wisdom and compassion increasingly become the guiding principles of our lives.
