How much time will this program take?
This program is designed to work with your schedule. Structured as a 21-day journey to help you make mindfulness a habit, the course is built around 5 sequential, spaced-out video lessons delivered over email, which you can listen to or watch at your convenience. Each lesson is no more than 20 minutes.
Although a digital course, what enlivens the program are the interactive components. Get to know Shan-En and your coursemates in a kick-off Zoom call the first Sunday of the 21 days, and clarify questions you may have over subsequent Zoom calls held on the second and third Sunday of the course duration. You can also engage with your coursemates and Sha-En over WhatsApp after each lesson is released. Your degree of participation is determined by what you are comfortable with. The goal is to put into practice the eight strategies so they become habit.
