Are The Fireworks Outside or Inside?


Every New Year's Eve I would look forward to seeing those beautiful and fascinating Fireworks which denote the end of another year and the dawn of a new one with new resolutions, new hopes, new plans etc coming into my life. Little did I know that all those "fireworks" actually happened in my mind.

How would you like to celebrate the year end differently this year by coming to join us in watching those magnificent "fireworks" in your mind?

We welcome you to join us on Sunday, 31 December 2017 at WISE Centre from 2:00pm for a half-day retreat followed by a potluck dinner* and then a small gift exchange** to share our love & joy at this event and usher in the new year together in a mindful and meaningful way.

If you are unable to make it for both the afternoon and evening programs, you may just join us for either one of them. We hope to see you there.

* Kindly contact program manager Daphne at 016-2010947 for the Potluck coordination so as to minimize waste and duplication of food.

** Gift Exchange has been a little tradition of WISE where each of us gets the opportunity of receiving a gift from another by the luck of a draw. Everyone is invited to bring something gift-wrapped to be placed in a pool of gifts for exchange later. Its not the value/cost of the gift but the heart/thought that counts. You will never know how your choice of gift may energize another or spur further insights towards inner understanding!
