Mindfulness Starts Here!
Dear <<First Name>>:
Congratulations to our newest graduates of our M4 programs. It was a wonderful 8 weeks and the feedback we received was enlightening! Thank you for your commitment and hard work!
After much anticipation - OMC is now offering two 8-week courses on Mindful Self-Compassion.
Self Compassion is not about self pity or self-indulgence. It is about being happy and healthy in the long term. Learn to turn towards yourself so that you can be kind-hearted as you go through your life experiences and not let your inner critic have the last word.
Program details are posted here
Our Information Sessions for our upcoming January-February classes begin November 18th and will run once a week until December 17th. Contact Hillary at email@example.com to receive a list of all the dates and to reserve your spot.
- OMC is hosting a 5 day intensive Self-Compassion retreat at the Galilee Center from April 19-24. Contact us for more details.
Our Day of Mindfulness
for the winter session will be on Saturday, February 7th at St. Paul's University. Everyone is welcome to join us.

"We hurry through the so-called boring things
in order to attend to that which we deem
more important, interesting.
Perhaps the final freedom will be a recognition that
everything in every moment is "essential"
and that nothing at all is "important."
