Ong Pee Eng
I am a mindfulness trainer, and I teach mindfulness practices to reduce stress and improve well-being.
I started practising mindfulness while studying in NUS more than 25 years ago. After graduating, I went to work in the IT industry, where I was a software project manager for 20 years. More than a decade ago, I hit a midlife crisis due to a reorganisation within the company. I ramped up my mindfulness practice and it tided me over that stressful period. Married with 2 teenage daughters, mindfulness has made me less likely to flare up at my daughters at home. Now I am retired from the IT industry and have switched to train people fulltime in mindfulness practice.
My interest in evidence-based teaching led me to pursue further training, and become
