Testimonials

"I read Buddhist texts more in Chinese than in English. Your explication is very systematic in a way conducive to comprehension and thus assimilation. Your guidance too is very clear. I feel very grateful to you and definitely like to continue with the practice." Jim C., Edinburgh, UK

"Before following Simon, I barely practiced meditation regularly because I disliked myself staying peaceful on the outside but being full of ideas inside. However, then I learnt to notice my feelings and label all thoughts, trying carefully not to evaluate or go deep into them. The weekly lesson about Buddhism seems to me a good supplement to understanding ourselves so it is useful both in meditation and life. I'm most impressed by the doctrine of dependent arising, which helps me to be more aware of my conditions now. At last, thank you for all the instructions! Very helpful!" Ms Liu, Edinburgh, UK

"I think that Simon is an excellent guide and teacher. His authenticity, knowledge, wisdom and humour shine through. Given there is only 30 minutes, I think the balance between instruction and practice is about right. I try to meditate at least one hour daily, and I am finding this very helpful." Michael S., Perth, Australia

Corporate Mindfulness Programme

Studies consistently show that corporate employees who attended a mindfulness course demonstrate positive change in their ability to make better decisions, with an overwhelming percentage becoming better listeners. A number of well-known conglomerates have implemented mindfulness based programs for their employees over the years, including Apple, Google, McKinsey, Ernst & Young, Deutsche Bank, and Procter & Gamble, just to name a few.

 

Hong Kong being known for its hard working culture could very much benefit from the introduction of mindfulness based programmes into the workplace, yet the city has still yet to fully harness its potential. To fill this gap, we have developed a "Corporate Mindfulness Programme" with the aim to inspire organizations to explore the benefits that mindfulness-based practices could bring.    

 

As an introduction, the Programme contains a 2-part series to encapsulate a succinct yet thorough introduction to the subject of mindfulness, which can be delivered in Cantonese and/or English:

 

1. What is mindfulness - foundational understanding that underpins inner growth and a calm and clear mind

2. How to be more mindful at work?  - through enhanced self-awareness, employees learn to communicate better, strengthen relationships, and lead with greater presence and impact

As featured in the popular facebook site flyagain.la, we are offering a unique experience to practice meditation and yoga within nature's embrace.

 

The excursion covers a silent hike, pre-dawn meditation, and sunrise yoga. There will also be a photo shoot session to capture these precious moments.

 

To catch the sunrise in a timely manner, the gathering time at Ma On Shan Country Park will be around 05:00. It will be all worth it as we arrive into a new day with the energizing rays of the sun. The full experience, priced at $2,000 per person (promotional), will last for about 3.5 hours, including the time required to hike up and down the trail. If you wish to opt out of photo-shooting, the price is $800 per person.
