Tenterden Mindfulness Group
Mindfulness is an evidence-based, non-religious practice which is not so much a therapy, more a teachable skill that involves directing our attention to our experience as it unfolds, moment by moment, with open-minded curiosity and acceptance.
We live in a world of constant busyness, where there is always another job to be done or a goal to achieve and it can often feel like we are just rushing through, rather than really living our lives. Mindfulness training can help to deal more effectively with stressful situations and can also help us to wake up to the richness of our lives as they actually are, as opposed to how we may wish them to be. In doing so we have an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of how our minds work.
