Using Music and Meditation to Improve Mental Health in Schools

Using Music and Meditation to Improve Mental Health in Schools

As part of the run-up to StartupWeekend Education Hong Kong from July 26-28, 2019, the organizing team is hosting another workshop: Using Music and Meditation to Improve Mental Health in Schools. StartupWeekend are aware that there is great pressure on students, parents, and teachers in their education system. They believe that combining meditation and music are one way for them to help de-stress the stakeholders in Hong Kong's education system. The event will first start with a short panel discussion with voices of students, parents, and teachers, highlighting some of the specific issues they are currently facing. Afterwards, it'll quickly jump into the workshop part of the event. Under the guidance of Hercules Chan, founder of the Void meditation app, and 丁浩峰, a handpan drum musician, they will lead us through an interactive hands-on session where they'll teach participants how to play the handpan drum, and to incorporate meditation more deeply into life.
