Iris

Mindfulness teaches me to be with myself. Self-care teaches me to fall in love with myself. From now on and for the rest of my life, I love myself, spoil myself, and have no rivals in love. This is the beginning of a love story with oneself. We have a long way to go, so embrace the future affectionately!

Feng Zu

I gained a preliminary understanding of mindfulness and self-compassion after this course. I also received a lot of help from daily practice.  Especially when I was depressed, I can calm myself down softly, without falling into self-denial for too long. Teacher Ting Li’s voice is warm and powerful; all her responses are very meticulous and loving. Thank you for your company for two months!

Mimi

I used to be a slave of my thoughts and it is practically a kind of self-torture – whichever way causes more excruciating pain, that is the way my thoughts would go.  I used to be unaware and unconscious, thinking that I was my thought. Now gradually, I’ve become aware and start to watch my thoughts.  I’m able to catch myself whenever my thoughts begin to run again.

Yolanda

Yolanda: For me, body scan is an opportunity to rest. It allows me to learn to be kind to myself, and give myself compassion in my busy and exhausting life.

Ann

Although light meals aren’t exhilarating and don’t stimulate taste buds, but when you eat with a mindful heart, they indeed bring a different kind of simplicity.  I am satisfied with one bowl, and I feel peaceful after the meal. Mindful eating is not only eating – it is essentially a process of restoring awareness and harmonizing the heart.

Xianxian

It's halfway through the eight-week class of mindfulness. At first, I know nothing about mindfulness. Now, I can sit down and meditate naturally and even bring mindfulness to walking, exercise, eating, etc. It's amazing.
