We are changing from Google Groups 

OMS Circles communications will be moving onto the OMS website in the near future, have you registered on the OMS Site?

A quick note to say, we will be phasing out the use of Google Groups in 2020 as we have developed an exciting new bespoke solution for OMS Circle members to communicate with each other. You will be able to do everything you could do before, and more! 

Benefits: 

  • Designed with you in mind, tested by the OMS community 

  • Access everything in one place with a single sign on for the website 

  • Easy to use

  • You can be sure that your data is private & secure 

  • More inclusive for people who don’t want to use social media 

This means we will no longer be creating any new Google Groups or adding new members and once all members are signed up we will be transferring over to the OMS website instead. We will also not be adding new members to the old Google Groups. 

Additionally, we will encourage the use of the new Circles instead of Facebook and WhatsApp groups once it is launched. 

Why do I need to sign up for a web profile? 

This will make things easier for you to sign up when the new Circles functionality is ready. 

There are other benefits to having a web profile including commenting on blog posts, saving favorite recipes and meditations to your profile and booking retreats. 

When will the new functionality launch?

This is currently in development and is being tested with a hope to launch in March or April. You will notice some changes to the map and website in the next week or so. 

My Circle no longer has an Ambassador 

If your Circle no longer has an ambassador, it will not be displayed on the new website until we can find someone to take this on. If you would like to put yourself forward as an Ambassador - please fill in this form

How can I keep up to date? 

Please be patient while we launch the new elements of the site- there might be some teething problems but it will be worth the wait in the end!
