Welcome to the Kent Mindfulness Centre
with Simone Stolton
Life can be scary, confusing, stressful and mundane, as well as wonderful, awe inspiring, exhilarating and joyful. Whatever stage you are at in your life now, the gentle embodied practices of mindfulness, compassion & mindfulness Yoga can help you navigate through the inevitable ups and downs, twists and turns of life.
If you are ready to train your mind, heart & body in the practice of presence read on…
I love helping people cultivate presence, connection, & insight – all qualities that can be developed through training our attention, developing greater awareness of mind, body and emotions, and learning to gently get to know & befriend ourself – intentionally.
I can help to facilitate and guide you through this with the 8 week Mindfulness Based Living Course, The 8 week Compassion Based Living Course, Mindfulness yoga classes, Mindful Movement, Meditation and Relaxation Classes – as well as one to one Kind-Space Coaching.
I also offer Retreats & Workshops.
“The bud stands for all things, even for those things that don’t flower, for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing: though sometimes it is necessary, to reteach a thing its loveliness, to put a hand on its brow of the flower and retell it in words and in touch it is lovely – until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing.”
I started yoga about 2 years ago with Simone as a complete novice.
I particularly enjoy the mix of stretching exercises, which are very welcome after a long day at the computer, and the mindfulness, releasing all tension built up during a busy day.
Continuing the sessions on zoom during lock-down worked really well for me, due in no small measure to Simone’s precise and well worded instructions and her wonderfully clear, gentle, and melodious voice!
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an innate capacity of the mind to be aware of the present moment in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. It can be developed through training and promotes a way of being that helps us take better care of ourselves and others, and lead healthier lives. By practising it the mind learns to be less distracted, calmer and gain more clarity. With its practical application in daily life it is particularly relevant to our time and its teachings remain as fresh as ever.
