1. Nature / Objectives

Silence is a source of great strength.
- Lao Tzu

Awareness is the greatest agent for change.
- Eckhart Tolle

Living in a fast-paced city like Hong Kong, we may find our minds full of scattered thoughts with concerns about our families, work and relationships, which often leave us in stress and anxiety. This programme is specially designed to help participants slow down, take a break from their busy schedule, and enjoy the beautiful natural environment of KFBG. It aims at supporting the participants to experience peace and happiness. 

Participants will spend time relaxing, reflecting and learning how to reconnect with nature in KFBG’s tranquil grounds. There will be a number of mindfulness activities, including silent walking and sitting in nature, total relaxation and reflection sessions. Through these activities, participants can fully appreciate the beauty and serenity of our natural environment whilst recharging body and mind.
