June 6, 2016
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.
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 http://mindfulnessacademy.org/en/programs/health-care-dom
