More about our evening:

In these VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous) times, is a “Pause for Reflection” considered a luxury or a necessity?

In the midst of constant challenges, how do we:

· Inspire ourselves as individuals to sustain our values through mindful practices?

· Empower ourselves as cohesive team members through the habits of mindful team leadership?

· Engage in social responsibility that creates the ripple effect of mindfulness in communities?

Upcoming Event: The Balanced Mother Workshop

The Balanced Mother is an interactive workshop aimed at helping you explore the concept of balance, understand the positive impact it can have on yourself and take first steps towards creating a more balanced life – one day at a time!

The Balanced Mother WorkshopMotherhood changes our lives completely and shifts attention to loving, nurturing and raising our children. Whether working mothers or stay-at-home mothers, our thoughts and schedules are determined by fulfilling the wonderful role of being a mother.

While motherhood is a wonderful and fulfilling experience it can also throw us off balance and leave us with too little time to handle the multiplicity of roles in our lives, be it in our personal or professional environment.

Event:The Balanced Mother Workshop
Date: Friday- March 20, 2015
Time: 9:30 AM – 12 PM (SGT)
Venue: Woolf Works – #02-01, 176 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore

This interactive workshop provides a space and time for mothers to take a breath, focus on themselves and reflect on the concept of balance in their lives. It also enables mothers to share experiences and challenges with each other – something that our previous attendants found to be very powerful. During the workshop we also introduce simple tools to use during and beyond the workshop to help in creating a more balanced life.

The Balanced Mother is a workshop developed and run by Jasmin Braun, owner and certified coach at evoke coaching (www.evoke-coaching.net). Jasmin specializes in coaching women towards personal and professional development. In her work as a coach she has helped many women and mothers create a more balanced life for themselves and their families.

Upcoming Event: Who’s Afraid of the Blank Page?

“For the shy, hesitant and reluctant artists-at-heart looking for a creative sanctuary and that much needed nudge.”

April Workshop FB Poster lowres

As grown-ups, we tend to get stuck trying to draw the ‘right way’ and to color within the lines just as we were once told. This pretty much makes up the ghost of our creative past. The 3-hour hands-on workshop aims to:

  1. approach art intuitively by celebrating the imperfect,
  2. explore the kind of art where every drawn line and shape is valid, and
  3. foster a safe and encouraging community for like-minded creatures.

Participants will be equipped with their own art kit.
