Mental Health Awareness Week
As part of Mental Health Awareness Week Programme organised by Imperial College London (18-24 May 2020), Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Centre is offering the following workshops to both students and staff. This year the Mental Health Foundation is celebrating a national theme of kindness. In light of the current Coronavirus outbreak and the repercussions this has had on how we live our lives, connecting with others is so important for our mental health.
Practicing kindness to ourselves and to others is a key element of all our meditation programmes. Mindfulness is an invitation to notice and ‘befriend’ our emotions; Buddhism offers ‘loving kindness meditation’ to all sentient beings including ourselves; and Christian meditation explores loving self and others.
Mindfulness can help you to stay calm, focused and better manage the pressures of life. It can help you be compassionate to yourself, especially if you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed or struggling to concentrate.
- Mondays, 12:00 – 12:50
- Tuesdays, 13:00 – 13:50
- Wednesdays, 18:00 – 19:00
Christian meditation uses stillness and silence to help us pay attention to the whole range of our experiences, and how to review the day with realism and kindness.
- Mondays, 13:00 – 13:50
Buddhist meditation can help you to unplug and detach from the stress of daily life. These sessions are especially suitable for those seeking to reduce anxiety, re-align balance or practice loving kindness.
