Cultivating Inner Peace

Spring 2021

Hustle and bustle of university life could be stressful and frustrating. Our mind always preoccupies with projects and tasks. We may easily fall into negative emotions and worry over the past or the future. Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our mind, body, and surrounding environment non-judgmentally. By being attentive to experience the present moment, we could regain our energy, enhance our wellbeing, and cultivate our true happiness.

In all four sessions, Ms. Christine Cheung, mindfulness practitioner who has twenty years of experience in practicing mindfulness and the founder of “Mindful Joyful Parenting” taught us practical mindfulness exercises to deepen our awareness, build our self-acceptance and bring us inner peace. Students experienced mindfulness exercises such as mindful breathing, tapping exercise, and mindful sitting to bring attention back to here and now. Sometimes we inevitably undergo strong emotions, as such, Christine introduced how mindfulness techniques reconnect our body and listen to our mind to stay with those storm-like emotions.

Different mindfulness practices and tips were shared to be an integral part of our daily life. Students would be able to relax their body and mind, be aware of themselves, stay with their emotions, live mindfully, and cultivate their inner peace after the sessions.
