On 27 October 2018, Erin was invited to Autodesk Singapore's Out of the Building initiative, where she gave an introduction to the importance of body awareness in practicing mindfulness. We discussed how we are mostly "living from the neck up" and the importance of grounding ourselves to the body in times of stress. Also present was Tiffany Wee from Mind Body Slim who shared on mindful eating!

See you there!
Mindful Moments conducted two introductory workshops over the months of September and October 2016 for the graduate students at the National University of Singapore (NUS) UTown Residences. The participants learned the importance of living in the present moment, as well as how to more effectively manage their stress levels. The mindfulness skills they picked up will certainly come in handy in times of stress and difficulties!
Are you an organization looking to organize a mindfulness training workshop for your colleagues or employees, do contact Erin to discuss possibilities!
We are also able to bring the classic research-based 8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program to your workplace or community. [More details here]
At Green Living 2016, Singapore's eco-living event held at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre, Mindfulness Coach Erin gave a sharing about the importance of practicing mindfulness in sustaining our personal well-being, for the greater good of a more peaceful community. She talked about what mindfulness is and isn't, the stress we experience when we dwell in the past or the future, as well as why we should train the mind to pay attention to the present.
Erin also led the audience through some simple mindfulness practices to observe their inner experience. All in all, the audience was really supportive and curious, and we hope they took away something valuable from the short 30-minute session!
Special thanks to Reed Exhibitions for inviting Mindful Moments to participate in Green Living.

What's the big deal about mindfulness? You might have wondered. You see it everywhere in the news and media; you've received emails and newsletters about mindfulness events; perhaps you've read an article or book about mindfulness; maybe you've even engaged in a little mindfulness practice yourself. You've noticed that companies, institutions and other organisations are paying increasing attention to this field and beginning to conduct mindfulness workshops and training for their employees and stakeholders. Why the fuss over this seemingly new discipline?
The fact is, mindfulness is getting a lot of attention, and it is not all just media hype. It is being increasingly backed by scientific research spanning the fields of neuroscience, psychological therapy, healthcare, education, and parenting - just to name a few. The proven benefits of practicing mindfulness has, in the recent decades, attracted more and more people to incorporate mindfulness in their daily lives.
This free information session, conducted by Erin Lee from Mindful Moments Singapore, will cover the background and develop of mindfulness, applications and research of this field, as well as an introduction to the classic 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program, on which many positive research outcomes are based. Participants will also be invited to join in a little experiential mindfulness practice, and have their questions about mindfulness answered.
The event offers two sessions: Session A at 2:30 pm, and Session B at 4:00 pm. Participants will only need to register for one of the sessions. If you're bringing family and friends, please register a seat for each attending person.
Dow Jones Singapore invited Erin to give a sharing about mindfulness on 27 Jan 2016 as part of their global Wellness Week initiative. Kudos to the company for taking care of their employees' health and well-being!
During the experiential session, Erin led the participants in a few mindfulness practices and explained how mindfulness helps us reduce stress and anxiety, regulate our emotions, and enhance our overall well-being.
Mindfulness is increasingly being incorporated into the workplace. Is your current workplace already practicing mindfulness? Do contact Erin if you'd like to arrange for a customized sharing or mindfulness program for your co-workers!
Mindful Moments was invited to give a sharing on mindfulness with ITE College West School of Electronics & Info-Comm Technology educators in the morning of Friday 8 January 2016.
After learning about the benefits, research, and applications of mindfulness and experiencing some moments of calmness and awareness, these dedicated educators expressed interest in bringing mindfulness into the classroom to benefit their students.
Erin is available to conduct mindfulness talks and programs for organisations, so please contact Erin to discuss the possibilities, because she would love to practice mindfulness with you.
