The T Project's 3rd Empowerment Workshop: Mindfulness

The third in our series of AWARE-sponsored workshops in 2018 took place on Friday, 31 August. This one, entitled 'Learning to be More Comfortable with Uncomfortable Feelings', was put on by Living Better, a group that aims to improve mental health literacy and quality of life for Singaporeans.

Participants worked on their 'distress tolerance' skills through guided discussions and exercises (such as breathing exercises and a Chinese finger trap activity). All in all, the workshop helped T Project residents and community members cope better with the various stresses they face as transgender women in Singapore.
