Introduction to Mindfulness
Mindfulness is essentially an evidence-based training programme for the mind and body where we can learn some practical skills to support a happier life and to respond to challenges in more helpful ways.
This session will give you a taste of what Mindfulness is and has been designed for those with no or limited knowledge of Mindfulness, as well as those who may have some experience but would like to reconnect with Mindfulness.
The session will explore some of the key themes of the various 8 week Mindfulness courses that Tenterden Mindfulness Group offers.

- Teacher: Dr Neil Pillai, an experienced and accredited UK Mindfulness teacher

Participants will be supported with written materials, brief mindfulness practices and ways to integrate what is learned into everyday life.
A message from the Chairman of Tenterden Mindfulness, Dr. Neil Pillai:
As a GP I am interested in helping all of us make the most of our lives, especially as we navigate through these unprecedented and uncertain times. What these times have shown us is that no-one is exempt from the challenges that life can throw up, whether that be the direct consequences of the Pandemic or the internal worries that we have about what might happen. We may also have had glimpses of how the slower pace of life may have revealed to us some simple pleasures- the beauty of nature perhaps or the kindness of others.
It’s never been more important to do things that support our wellbeing, not just for ourselves but so that we are in the best possible shape for those around us.
The National Health Service has come up with the top five evidenced based ways to maintaining Wellbeing: connecting with others, keeping physically active, learning new skills, giving to others and paying attention or Mindfulness.
TMG is a registered UK charity whose sole purpose is to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of our community through the practice of Mindfulness.
