Here is the information about her talk:
Mindfulness as a journey of self-understanding and self-transformation (Come back to yourself- Aware- Let go via Mindful breath.)
“In this talk, you will discover many aspects of mindfulness (C.A.L.M) through simple ‘bite-sized’ practice: from the art of living in the present moment, the power of awareness, the power of self-observation nonjudgmentally, the power of a mindful mindset, to the power of pause and natural breathing.
This talk also provides you with some simple tips to dwell in the present moment without getting lost in regret about the past and the unnecessary worries in the future, to reduce stress, to enhance well-being, to have better anger management and to become more present with your job, your loved ones and yourself, especially when you are the teachers and parents of young children.
This talk also shares with you authentic stories of teachers on their journey to transform themselves to be more peaceful and successful in both personal and professional lives and transform their students with challenging behaviours into kind and calm kids.”
