A Day of Mindfulness (one-day retreat)

for Health Care and Human Service Professionals
from 9:30 to16:30 on Saturday July 8th, 2017
t Centre on Behavioral Health,The University of HongKong

   June 5, 2017

Dear friends,

You are invited to attend a Day of Mindfulness(DOM) for healthcare and human service professionals, co-organized by HKU Centre on Behavioral Health and Plum Village Mindfulness Academy - Hong Kong. This DOM is part of our Healthy Body, Healthy Mind” Initiative to integrate mindfulness practices to the physical and mental health fields.

The foundations of this initiative are the teachings and practices of Mindfulness based on the Discourse on Full Awareness of Breathing (Anapanasati Sutta) and the Discourse on the Four Establishments of Mindfulness (SatipatthanaSutta), as taught by the Buddha about 2600 years ago. We also studied how the mind works, based on the teachings of Manifestation- Only Psychology,which was systematized in the 4th century by the Indian Buddhist monk and philosopher Vasubandhu of the Yogacara Buddhist School. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh has used these teachings to form the foundation for meditation practices to help us nourish our body and mind, to develop insight and to help us transform pain and suffering into peace and happiness. Even though the teachings are from Buddhist tradition, the practices are non-sectarian and are open to people of all faith.


For this DOM, we will learn to understand our mind, which is usually called mental formations in Buddhist psychology and as mental or emotional states in Western Psychology. We will learn how to be aware, to concentrate, to calm and to free our mind. Mindful breathing is the key to being aware of our mind because it brings the mind and body back together in the here and now. We can cope with strong emotions better if we are aware of them.


“When his mind is desiring, the practitioner is aware, ‘My mind is desiring.’ When his mind is not desiring, he is aware, ‘My mind is not desiring.’ When his mind is hating something, he is aware, ‘My mind is hating.’ When his mind is not hating, he is aware, ‘My mind is not hating.’ When his mind is in a state of ignorance, he is aware, ‘My mind is in a state of ignorance.’ When his mind is not in a state of ignorance, he is aware, ‘My mind is not in a state of ignorance.’ When his mind is collected, he is aware, ‘My mind is collected.’ When his mind is not collected, he is aware, ‘My mind is not collected.’ When his mind is distracted, he is aware, ‘My mind is distracted.’ When his mind is not distracted, he is aware, ‘My mind is not distracted.' - Discourse on the Four Establishments of MindfulnessIn our daily life, we are controlled mostly by our emotions, feelings, perceptions. We forget our freedom, we are caught up in endless thinking throughout the day and night. For this DOM, we will learn how to live through physical and mental discomforts. It is the time for us to stop reacting but more being with them. We can explore how impermanent they are and we can find our freedom again by practicing the third and fourth foundations ofMindfulness: contemplation of the mind and the object of mind.In the day of mindfulness, we will learn the practice of going back to our breath, anchoring our mind in the in-breath and out-breath. We become calm and clear when the mind and body are together in one place, with the help of our mindful breath. We will practice listening to the bell, walking meditation, eating meditation, exercise meditation (mindful movements), and relaxation meditation (total relaxation) … We practice to stop, to slowdown the thinking in our mind via bodily actions.You can find more information about activities of past days of mindfulness at
