OMT: Who is it for?

Open Mindfulness, Pleine présence Pleine Consicence, A qui s’adresse l’OMT ? OMT: who is it for ?

Open Mindfulness Training is a method that is accessible to everyone, and is taught in group sessions led by an accredited instructor. This is a training for the heart and soul, leading to the discovery and development of a vast, calm and benevolent quality of attention at home and in the workplace, in both the family and in society.
Adapted for the modern lifestyle, it offers a practical solution to feelings of restlessness and unease. Approached from a secular perspective, OMT links universal contemplative traditions to the modern world.

Incorporating the Practice

A secular form of meditation

To more fully enter into the experience of mindfulness, the OMT method encourages a natural incorporation of the practice through gradual trainings and interpersonal exchanges.  The progressive stages of the training are specifically designed to facilitate this gradual process of integration.

Through learning, moment by moment, to tune into the breath, physical sensations, and the flux of thoughts and emotions,  the OMT method enables each person to expand their field of attention until they are fully present in each and every moment.

The approach developed by the OMT method is non-denominational and scientifically based. It is a natural and secular way of learning, allowing each person to connect with their inner nature that radiates a state of openness and kindness towards themselves and others.

The Benefits of the Practice

OMN-PARTICIPATION

Mindfulness calms the sympathetic nervous system, which controls all of the automatic functions of the body (heartbeats, adrenaline release). It isn’t a type of treatment for particular symptoms or specific states of discomfort. When practiced regularly, however, mindfulness meditation can help to regulate the autonomic nervous system which can be disrupted by stress, fatigue or emotions. With an open vision, it allows each person to gain a sense of calm detachment, and to develop openness, tolerance, acceptance, confidence, and focus, leading to a more harmonious and adaptive way of being in their physical, emotional and social life.
