More about HAN WEE TAN
Having always had a keen interest in philosophy and the esoteric, Han underwent teacher training with a yoga ashram for 2 years before living in that ashram for another two and a half years, developing himself individually and as a teacher. He delivered numerous courses, workshops and retreats during his time there and, most notably, taught and coordinated the ashram’s teacher training program. The ashram drew many likeminded people to it, providing Han with the opportunity to meet and learn from many other acclaimed meditation teachers. These interactions led to a deepened understanding of the science behind mindfulness along with the various techniques applied. He has since developed and delivered a multitude of Mindfulness workshops and courses in Australia, including specialised workshops to allied health professionals and mental health workers. Mindfulness has become such an important and beneficial way of life for him and is something he continues to share passionately with others for their wellbeing."
"We can't control what happens on the outside but we do have a say over the quality of our mind. No matter what's going on, if your mind is ok, everything is ok. Right now"
