TESTIMONIALS

Overall I feel much more energised in my experience! I have more energy… [and can] release and focus that energy in a positive way. All the expanded awareness…was very enlightening.

This camp is quite special. Not only the children get taught, but also the parents get taught. So it’s a win-win situation for teenagers and adults. So you should come because it’s really worth the trip for the family.

Mindfulness is …a very very good aspect in life that we need to incorporate so that we become more holistic. Today’s experience was an eye-opener obviously. It has opened up a world of possibilities. This experience actually allowed me to be aware of different ways of knowing myself. First, be aware, and also to apply that awareness in our day-to-day lives, in problem-solving, in resolving private issues [and in] understanding ourselves better.

What I benefited most was regarding the feelings and the thoughts. We are all aware of emotions and feelings that we don’t like. (We) convince ourselves or rationalise it – “it shouldn’t bother me so much”….and still it bothers you. From today, there is one take-home that there is another technique that I can try – mindful of the feelings and emotions. Something I need to try!

Stop, Breathe and Be Mindful workshop, Aug 2016

I’ve learnt so much. I wish I’ve learnt mindfulness at kindergarten.

 

I have applied it in many aspects of my life and I found it to be so beneficial. First, I learnt to understand myself and then it also improved my relationship with my family members and even in my work [as a doctor], I find I am more sensitive and able to help my patients better.

 

(After another retreat) We feel so grateful to the GloWithin team! If you read on our [gloWithin] Teachers’ profile, [they’re] so impressive, with multiple degrees from top world universities. Yet they are so humble. They really make the kids interested in mindfulness. Sometimes things like mindfulness, [it’s] good to let the experts teach our kids so they start on the right footing.”

 

Daughter: I learnt a lot from this camp and they taught me how to be mindful, aware and also relax and stay calm. So I really applied that to my examinations … I take deep breaths, I can actually excel better.

 

Mother: Remember your Chinese exams just after the camp? You improve by 20 points…it’s pretty amazing! And relationship with your brother and friends?

 

Daughter: Also improved!

Family Bonding and Mindfulness Retreat, May & Nov 2016

Daughter: I actually had learnt a lot from all the facilitators and they’ve taught me really well. Last time, my mum and I didn’t really work out very well because she didn’t really understand me and I didn’t really understand her. But once you all have taught me, I had the courage to tell her everything, so now we are actually okay and fine. It was fun and very nice. I learnt a lot and I am looking forward for more camps.

 

Mother: I would like to thank Glowthin for having this retreat. I think it is fabulous. Well done, good job! [gloWithin] has activities that made us even closer and we are more opened up! I can see the bond [between] me and my elder [daughter]. I can see the difference. Thank you so much!
