Mindful Taipei’s goal is to make accessible to the foreign community in greater Taipei the Eastern wisdom traditions of Chan/Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, as well as Daoist and yogic health practices, so as to apply them practically, and mindfully, in our busy modern lives.
At Mindful Taipei, we train in mindfulness, meditation, qigong, including in a learning environment that is both accessible and traditionally Eastern. All of our instructors have years of professional experience in both their home countries and Taiwan. Our main teacher is a well-known speaker and writer in the Chinese-speaking world who has trained and lectured extensively in these areas for the last three decades.
Our program attendees span all continents and religious and non-religious backgrounds, and these practical teachings are open to anyone genuinely wishing to lead a constructive and happy life!
Our current activities in Taipei:
Our weekly class focuses on the practical study of mindfulness, meditation, and qigong. Our short-term programs include workshops, courses, retreats and events in the contemplative arts, health practices and training in the Zen and Buddhist traditions.
