Dear Friend,

You are invited to a Day of Mindfulness (DOM) facilitated by Joyful Garden Sangha, taking guidance from Plum Village and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

The DOM is a day for the community to come back together to be nourished from the collective energies, practicing leaving behind work and worries, to experience the happiness of the present moment. In practicing together, we learn to enjoy doing daily things with mindfulness – walking, sitting, eating, listening, speaking, resting – bringing our body and mind into the present moment.

Date: 2014 May 25
Time: 10am to 4pm (note the new starting time at 10am)
Venue: Gan Clan

NOTE: New suggested contribution of $15

For many years our community has been able to sustain DOMs with your generous donation/dana, and it is our hope that DOM remains available to all regardless of financial status. We seek your understanding and support of $15/person to help cover basic rental and food costs. If this poses any difficulty, please just join us anyway because the community’s generosity has been able to embrace all.

P.S: We would like to share a recent post from the Plum Village Sangha website:
The Meaning of Mindfulness – A film clip taken from research interviews for the upcoming feature documentary “Walk With Me”.

Wake Up Singapore is a group of young friends who enjoy spending time together to practice breathing, sitting, walking, singing, playing, gardening, cooking, and so on in mindfulness. We are the seedlings sprouted from Joyful Garden Sangha. We are part of Wake Up, an active global community of young mindfulness practitioners, aged 18- 35, inspired by the teachings of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village Monastics. We come together to practice mindfulness in order to take care of ourselves, nourish happiness and contribute to building a healthier and a more compassionate society. If you would like to join Wake Up activities (outside the usual DOMs), please drop an email to
