.b Foundations Courses
Jockey Club “Peace and Awareness” Mindfulness Culture in Schools Initiative (JC PandA) will offer .b Foundations for free for educators during the 2023-24 academic year. The entire course spans nine weeks. School management personnels who are interested are welcome to join.
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.
‘Weekend Practice’ is an online group practice space especially designed for the graduates of eight-week mindfulness courses. Through 30 minutes of guided practice (mainly sitting meditation) in regular gatherings, we aim to deepen our practice of mindfulness in a supportive group environment.
Mindfulness Activities organised by Resources Schools
The nine resources schools joining JC PandA serve as the resources hubs to connect with the affiliated schools and schools from the nearby community, building an extensive mindfulness educators’ community in Hong Kong. Members from the public are welcome to join the mindfulness activities organised by these resources schools located in different districts of Hong Kong.
