Instructor: Mr Ong Pee Eng, Qualified MBSR Mindfulness Teacher 

Mr Ong Pee Eng’s mindfulness journey began more than 30 years ago while he was still in university. When his work triggered a midlife crisis, he ramped up his practice, which successfully tided him over that stressful period. As a working husband and parent to two daughters, he recognises that mindfulness makes him less likely to flare up at home. Now, he is a full-time mindfulness trainer, conducting anything from mindfulness workshops, weeks-long courses, children’s classes to 1-on-1 meditation sessions.

His interest in evidence-based teaching led him to pursue further training and become
