paying attention in a particular way,
on purpose in present moment and non-judgmentally.
The Sowing the Seeds of Mindfulness (SSM) aims to help Catholic to develop the ability to centering oneself and to heighten the awareness towards bodily sensations. The 8-week SSM workshop is adapted from the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, a systematic training in mindfulness meditation and mindful yoga, which has been established at the University of Massachusetts Medical School since 1979.
Thanks to LEUNG Mei-yung, one of the SSC core in Hong Kong, for her persistence in spreading and upholding the essential spirit of mindfulness in the SSC community. After conducting MBSR for Catholic for several years, she formed the SSM core group in 2014 with 5 new members, called to lead the 8-week workshop the first time. The SSM 2014 workshop was held in 28th October to 16th December, 2014 which took place in the LS centre, Kwung Tong. It was grateful to have 22 participants recruited.
