Public Education

The Jockey Club “Peace and Awareness” Mindfulness Culture in School Initiative (JC PandA) organizes various public education activities to promote mindfulness culture.  Let’s practise mindfulness together!

Mindful Monday

 

Mindfulness is the awareness arising from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally. It is also about compassionate acceptance of ourselves. “Mindful Monday” encourages us to start our week with various mindfulness practices such as sitting, stretching, walking, and body scan. An educational psychologist from the JC PandA will provide guided mindfulness practices in the coming Mondays. Students, staff, alumni and the general public are welcome to join any or all sessions.

Mindful Evening

 

Mindful Evening provides us with an opportunity to practise mindfulness together as a way to take care of ourselves at the end of a busy day. An educational psychologist from the JC PandA and school personnel from the organizing school will guide various mindfulness practices in the evening gatherings.

Sharing Webinar

 

The Jockey Club “Peace and Awareness” Mindfulness Culture in Schools Initiative (JC PandA) hosted by the Faculty of Social Sciences is going to organize an online sharing webinar in collaboration with nine seed schools. Experience on cultivating mindfulness culture at schools will be shared.

Mindfulness Day for Teachers

 

Teaching is a noble profession with unfathomable contributions. Nevertheless, it is also a profession with high stress. Considering the tremendous workload and demand, it is important for teachers to maintain good mental health. Mindfulness Day for Teachers is an event which aims at nourishing teachers with mindfulness practices. School teachers and educators are most welcome to join and enjoy the mindful moment with us!

Mindfulness Day for Parents

 

Parenting is a lifelong journey. It brings plenty of joy but also affliction. In day-to-day family life, being a parent can feel like an overwhelming and endless task. In the heat of the moments, parents may also react with anger. Mindfulness Day for Parents is an event that is open to parents. Parents will explore how they could bring conscious attention to the everyday family life and regain their inner strength.
