Mindfulness practice, when combined with the knowledge and practical skills of bread-making, provides us with a very satisfying experience of rediscovering our inner strengths.
The very act of making bread with our hands can help open up our five senses to work in perfect harmony with our mind. Then, when our emotions are stable, diverse possibilities that grow in our imagination can be manifested.
This group workshop is divided into two sessions on the same day. Spend a productive hour before work making your own bread. Later, during your lunch break, enjoy your delicious creation (and sample your classmates’ creations )!
1. To strengthen the senses of sight, smell, taste and touch, and the body and soul, in the process of bread-making, through our mind's eye
2. To experience how the process of bread-making releases stress
1. The technique of mind-watching
2. Mindful bread-making
3. An introduction to different types of bread
08:00 - 09:00 Session 1: Bread-making (before office hours)
09:00 - 13:00 Participants get back to work
13:00 - 14:00 Session 2: Enjoy the bread (during your lunch break)
