Yeo Boon Khim Mind Science Centre



The course takes place four times per year, in January, April, July, and October.

To increase training capacity for volunteer trainers and bring the programme to a wider audience, the AWE E-Learning Training Course was created in collaboration with SUSS UniLEARN and Stroke Support Station. The training course for volunteers blends e-learning with practical sessions to equip learners with knowledge of basic mindfulness strategies. The e-learning programme replaces the earlier face-to-face teaching sessions provided to volunteers and allows interested volunteers to acquire knowledge and skills at their own pace and in their own time.

Six online modules cover the topics of Lifestyle Management, Stroke Prevention, Dementia, Depression and Caregiving. Participants who have completed the AWE E-Learning Training Course can complete a 7th module on Teaching & Facilitation to be certified as an AWE volunteer instructor.

What is Mind Gym?

Just as how people go to gym to train physical fitness, it is beneficial to cultivate the habit of going to a Mind Gym to train mental “muscles”.

Who is it for?

It is for anyone who is interested to start and sustain mindfulness practice for mental fitness. We welcome patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, as well as members of public to join!

What do we offer?

Mindfulness programmes offered by Mind Gym are largely based on the secular work of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and other Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBIs) as informed by research. Adaptions are made to cater to the unique needs of different populations Mind Science Centre serves.
