MINDFULNESS TRAINING FOR YOUR WORKPLACE OR SCHOOL
Hang and Sarah travel around the world offering personalised mindfulness training in workplaces and schools. To accommodate your needs and schedule, this can be in the form of classes, workshops, courses, or retreats.
The mindfulness training that Hang and Sarah offer is about learning to integrate mindfulness into daily life. Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. When we learn the art of mindful living; enjoying our breath, our steps, and the many wonders that each moment offers us, we nourish our happiness and our capacity to be present, look deeply and transform the suffering in ourselves. When the seeds of peace and happiness have grown in our hearts, we can offer that abundance to those around us, doing our part to contribute to the well-being of the world.
Research has indicated that a mindful lifestyle can reduce stress & anxiety, cultivate joy, inner peace and overall well-being.
Hang and Sarah share their mindfulness practice and experience in the tradition of Buddhist Zen teacher, author, and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village spiritual community. They warmly welcome and respect people from all faiths.
