Sessions for Kids

Our kids mindfulness classes at KMC Kent teach kids how to meditate plus introduce them to foundational Mindfulness concepts derived from Kadampa Buddhism: how to connect to a sense of inner peace, to identify with our astounding potential, develop compassion, generosity, gratitude, authentic self-confidence and let go of agitating states of minds like anger and jealousy. Regular attendance at these classes can assist kids with the development of important life skills such as increased empathy, respect for others, authentic self- confidence, self-control, and concentration.

These sessions,  led by Sean, Kyla, Fiona and Jane, will help kids connect to their imaginations and realize that we are who we decide to be. They learn that our painful emotions are like clouds passing in the clear blue sky of our minds. These lessons in meditation and ancient wisdom teachings can plant seeds in these young minds that will flower for years to come, giving them insight into the power we have to create our own experiences.

During the arts and crafts sessions the kids will engage in meaningful creativity activity that will stimulate their imagination, reflection and their sense of wonder and fun.

For Parents:

Whilst the children engage in Arts and Crafts, Chelvi will facilitate a 30 min session on mindful parenting which will include a guided meditation and a workshop on mindful parenting. As parents, learning to apply simple meditation techniques, and using mindfulness, we can experience a place of calm inside even when our family life is busy, difficult, or completely chaotic. These sessions are also ideal opportunity for parents to connect with each other and form meaningful and transformational friendships.

The Mindful Parent’s session will be facilitated by Chelvi who is both a parent and Buddhist meditation teacher.
