Wework Oct.10: Mind Care and Detoxication
This event is coorganized by Mindiverse and WeWork Amsterdam.
Mindiverse provides the mindfulness practice session and WeWork Amsterdam provides the detoxication drinks and venue.
Mind Care via Mindfulness
Mental health matters to everyone, because that is the precondition leading to a happy life. Modern life is fraught with information and influences. People are facing all kinds of mental challenges: stress at work, disturbance from all kinds of uncertainties, pernicious comments and microaggressions, confusion about their life purposes, negativity, procrastination, overthinking, you name it.
In reality, being happy and staying positive requires proper mental skills and correct understanding of how the mind works. A healthy mind matters most, doesn’t it? Fortunately, we can gradually pick up these mental skills via mindfulness practice with dedicated efforts, in spite of all kinds of hypes about mindfulness. Via meditation, we observe the mind in stillness, train our mind to be present, gradually and thoroughly understanding how the mind works and why compassion matters. As a result, everyone will be able to understand themselves truly and find a solution to their own mental challenges.
In this session organized by Mindiverse, let’s practise mindfulness together. This event is for everyone. For beginners, they will pick up the meditation techniques; for everyone, they will reflect on some philosophical points relevant to their life under the guidance. Mind you, don’t expect to solve all your issues from a single session. Spiritual growth needs your effort, patience and dedication.
Topic: Be present, stay healthy!
Fees: Free, but you need to dedicate your time to this spiritual growth session.
Time&Date: 1 – 2 PM (after lunch, so you have enough energy), October 10.

舒 is an insightful Chinese character, meaning ease & comfort, read as 'shū'. It has two parts, 舍 (give up, donate) and 予(self, me). A life without ego is comfortable. Coincidentally, no-self is a key status leading to awakening in Buddhism. #mindfullness #mindiverse— Chao (Cico) Zhang (@CicoCN) January 21, 2019
