Be in the present
Mindfulness with Flowers
Join Tan Cheen Chong, mindfulness teacher, and florist, Juliana Foo in a mindfulness session where you will be introduced to your five senses through a relaxed and hands-on experience.
We will briefly discuss the science and benefits of cultivating this habit, before experiencing a simple and popular mindfulness technique: awareness of breath. As a group, we discover each other's experiences and insights on how this skill is applicable in our daily lives.
From that state of awareness, we’ll move into free-form flower-arranging, where we’ll be introduced to flower care, and choosing the correct flowers.
You will then learn how to appreciate the beauty of flowers through smell, sight, touch and immerse in making your arrangement while being aware of these senses.
- Feel relaxed, aware and be present
- Sense of calmness
- Feel accomplished
- Train your mind to learn a new skill

What People Say
President of WINGS
I found the mindfulness tips useful and easy to practise. The know how of the floral arrangement was also fun and effective. Easy to follow and useful for our attempts at home.
It was such a meaningful afternoon spent, and a reminder to live my life mindfully, and channel the positive energy that comes from it into creativity that sparks joy.
The class was very relaxing and I have been practising the mindfulness breathing exercise everyday. It’s very effective.
