About the event

Being for Beginners is a wellbeing series provided to staff and researchers at Oxford and other universities including Cambridge. For hundreds of people  the series has strengthened their wellbeing, giving them vital tools to navigate life with greater confidence and happiness.  It receives 5* reviews on Trustpliot.

The series is available to the public through occasional weekend retreats in the university's beautiful Wytham Woods near Oxford.

These weekends provide an opportunity to step back and reflect upon ideas and frameworks drawn from various traditions, disciplines and cultures.  It asks how do we 

  • Grow in wellbeing? 
  • Develop a wellbeing mindset?
  • Be less anxious and stressed?
  • Become more positive and skilled in our thoughts and feelings?

The series develops greater self-awareness, explores practices that improve self-understanding, and provides tools to change habits and patterns of thought and feeling. It offers fresh perspectives on our relationship with ourself, with nature, time and others.

It is a series for those who want to grow.

During the weekend we explore various ideas and practices such as meditation. No previous experience is required.  There is a strong emphasis upon personal privacy and individuality.
