About this course

We (Kentmindfulness) have developed a programme of Mindfulness sessions that is flexible and time friendly. We acknowledge and recognise that in today’s busy schedules it is not always easy to access and commit to a course that runs within a limited timescale.
Each session has been designed to offer the student skill and technique which can be utilised straight away.
Each term includes five sessions held once a fortnight which build together to form a whole course. Any session can be accessed during any of the terms.
Mindfulness is useful in so many ways – helping anxieties, restlessness, pain, communication etc. Regular practice ensures that it becomes a way of life with a less scattered mind that doesn’t ponder on the past and worry about the future. This is recognised as being in the present moment – but in the meantime we all have to continue with busy times.

Some people may choose to attend sessions more than once, or to use the sessions as more formal practice sessions – they of course are very welcome alongside new students, as sharing ideas is very useful to everyone.

The title of this session is:-
Recognising the effects of worry, befriending self.

Learning goal
To begin to understand the benefits of being kind to self which lead to a greater sense of being present and without judgement
Mindfulness creates the conditions for a calm and present centred mind, while kindness / self-compassion involves learning to be caring to ourselves, sensitive to our distress, tolerant of our feelings, understanding and non-judgemental .

How will I be taught?

Information and instruction for each session is outlined separately to enable the student to be informed and make their attendance decision and to keep track of their progress through a course.

During this session we will explore techniques which will demonstrate to each person privately and individually how taking steps to be kind to self will benefit both self and others.

There will be opportunity to share information and to discuss any issues arising.

What do I need to bring with me?

There will be exercises which can take place sitting in a chair, or if preferred, sitting on the floor. Please bring cushions and/or blankets if the latter is chosen.

What can I do next?

Please discuss with your tutor or ask a member of staff for more details.

What do I need to join the course

Nothing - all are welcome.
