The retreat aims to promote mindfulness techniques

Local organisations the Wild Heart Project and Events for Life have joined hands to host a resilience retreat for Hong Kong children who board.

The event is aimed at boarding school students who are back in the SAR for half-term and aims to help cultivate well-being, develop resilience and provide coping techniques for exams. In short, it’s all about dealing with life.

For teens, living away from home can be a daunting time. The ‘Tools For Schools’ Boarders Resilience Retreat focuses on helping each student to build a strong sense of ‘self’.

Areas covered include boundary setting (six ways to say ‘no’ and how to deal with friends and family); positive mindsets; managing big emotions; the importance of self-care and how to employ mindfulness practices such as mediation, breathing techniques and yoga; and Emotional Freedom Techniques to re-programme negative thoughts and feelings.

All students need bring along is water, a healthy packed lunch, a yoga mat (if they have one) and a small cushion. Contact Mindy at Events for Life with further questions mindy@eventsforlife.com.hk.

Boarders Resilience Retreat, $1,588/person, 10am-5pm, Oct 23, Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground, Activity Room 1, 109 Po Hong Road, Hang Hau.
