About the Event
Finding Peace in a Frantic World - 8 Week Mindfulness Course
Do you sometimes feel that your life is defined by frantic busyness, anxiety, stress and exhaustion? If so the Finding Peace course may be for you! The course is designed to help participants to settle their minds and enhance their natural happiness and contentment using mindfulness meditation.
The course is delivered in 1.5 hour sessions over eight weeks and introduces participants to mindful awareness through a range of practices that encourage us to bring curiosity to our experience and befriend the body.
Throughout the sessions we:
- develop mindfulness in everyday activities
- pay attention to our thoughts and feelings
- explore how we react or respond to difficulties
- consider how we relate to ourselves and others
- review how we can develop a healthier balance in our lives.
The sessions are a mix of mindfulness practices, input from the teacher and opportunities to share in small groups and the group as a whole.
The course is taught by qualified and experienced Mindfulness teacher David Bignell and runs for 8 weeks on a Tuesday evening from 18:30 - 20:00 at West View Integrated Care Centre in Tenterden. The dates are:
- Tuesday 18th April 2023
