  • Reading Between The Lines: Identifying And Responding To A Cry For Help
    7 May, 2022 - 3:00 pm

    Priyana Mirchandani
    mindish Hong Kong

    “Please reach out” is a phrase we’ve all heard time and time again, often accompanied by the tragic news of someone who likely did not reach out in time. The expectation here is that those who are experiencing a difficult time must vocalise their circumstances—on top of dealing with everything else they are going through. While encouraging—or rather normalising—the idea of more people openly and expressly asking for help in a telling time of need, many people often show early and late warning signs that if identified correctly and responded to compassionately can make all the difference. In this workshop, mindish Psychotherapist Priyana Mirchandrani explores the range of tell-tale signs that can often signify a cry for help and empowers you with strategies to take care of those around you while also protecting yourself.

  • Collective Parenting: How To Love Your Child
    17 May, 2022 - 7:00 pm

    Shelly Chutke
    mindish Hong Kong

    Strangely, and rather awkwardly, it seems no human being can ever really grow up sane unless it has been loved very deeply by someone for a number of years in its early life. But we’re still learning what parental love might actually involve. Put simply: love is the considerate, tender, hugely patient behaviour displayed by an adult over many years towards a child who cannot help but be largely out of control, confused, frustrating and bewildered—in order that it might over time grow into an adult who can take its place in society without too much of a loss of spontaneity, without too much terror and with a basic trust in its own capacities and chances of fulfilment. The word ‘love’ trips lightly off the tongue and few parents–even the most disagreeable ones–would ever resist a claim that they felt the emotion deeply, but that doesn’t mean that loving behaviour is any easier to understand in theory or practice in reality. In this confidential group session—where vulnerability is encouraged and imperfections are celebrated—mindish Counsellor Shelly Chutke discusses the fundamentals of parental love and the challenges that surround our ability to show up as loving parents with mindish (parent) members.

  • Sustaining The Mind: Good Food Is A Mood
    21 May, 2022 - 3:00 pm

    Tiffany Shek
    mindish Hong Kong

    Grain of Salt Founder & mindish Dietitian Tiffany Shek explores the relationship between what we eat and how we feel through an interactive culinary experience and why eating sustainably is easier and yummier than you think—and no, it’s not all just soups and salads (promise).

    If you have dietary restrictions, allergies, and aversions, please let us know at least 48 hours before the event is scheduled to start, preferably at the time of registering for the event.

Our response to COVID-19

To protect our community and prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented the following health and safety measures — so we can all have peace of mind.

Heightened deep-cleaning: We use top-grade disinfectant proven to kill COVID-19 to regularly disinfect everything from doorknobs to meditation mats to couches — regardless of how often they are used.

Our staff: We currently test our team — from therapists to meditation teachers —  every day for COVID-19. Our staff wear face masks as required by law, and are also checked for symptoms of COVID-19 regularly. We encourage staff to limit person-to-person contact, including hugs and high fives.

Aside from respecting the safety guidelines put in place by the government, we ask that every member of our community takes our commitment seriously by following our house rules.

Social distancing: Please make sure to practice social distancing when in close, shared spaces like meditation rooms and common areas. Follow the markers placed around the room to maintain a safe distance.

If you are experiencing any symptoms or feel unwell: If you have a cough, fever, or symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit us until you are symptom-free for at least a week. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have knowingly come into close contact with someone who has, we ask that you do not come in for 7 days and until only after you’ve tested negative for COVID-19. If you feel unwell, please stay home and stay safe, but you can always reach out to us for support over chat or a phone call.
