Mindfulness is being aware of the present moment and acknowledging current feelings and thoughts without being judgemental. Contrary to letting your life pass you by, mindfulness involves being in the moment and having a heightened sense of awareness of the world around you.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week introduction to mindfulness through guided meditation, group dialogue, and home practice.

The programme focuses on the use of mindfulness for managing everyday stressors related to everyday work, health, relationship, and other concerns. Over the course of eight weeks, you’ll learn to be more present and to be more aware of automatic reactions and communication patterns that cause stress.


  • 8 sessions of MBSR – weekly (7:00pm to 9:00pm)
    (*To fully benefit from the programme, please make sure you can attend all classes).
  • Orientation Session (7:15pm – 8:15pm) is required by all participants before the start of the programme – please see upcoming sessions.
  • Day of Mindfulness –  a compulsory session to attend (10:00am to 4:00pm).
