Instructor: Mr Ong Pee Eng, Qualified Teacher of MBSR

Mr Ong started practising mindfulness while studying in NUS, more than 25 years ago. After graduating, he went to work in the IT industry as a software project manager for 20 years. He then entered a crisis due to reorganisation within the company. He ramped up his mindfulness practice and it tided him through that stressful period. Married with 2 teenage daughters, mindfulness has allowed him to focus better and worry less. Now, he is retired from the IT industry and ambitions to train people in mindfulness practice.

He conducts mindfulness workshop, 4 to 8 weeks-long mindfulness course, 6 to 10 weeks-long mindfulness classes for students in schools, and 1-on-1 meditation session.

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