Seva is about giving back...

There is so much good that we can do with our Meridian 101 acupressure skills and knowledge in the application of herbal essential oils. We encourage all our Meridian 101 Ambassadors and learners of Meridian 101 to actively apply their preventive care knowledge and skills to help others, especially the aged and, the challenged and the less fortunate in our society.

Here are some of the past and regular Meridian 101 Seva Projects that we work on passionately. If you are a charity organization or a non-profit humanitarian group that needs our seva service, we would love to hear from you too.

Project We Care is an initiative led by the private sector and the People’s Association to encourage corporate giving and volunteerism in Singapore. At these Presidential Garden Parties held at the Istana, over a thousand residents, many from the lower income families, were invited to a day of celebration in the presence of the President of Singapore, Dr Tony Tan. We mobilized our Meridian 101 Ambassadors to support these events and offered Meridian 101 service and wellness education to the beneficiaries.

 

 

Medical Mission in Nepal 2011

Meridian 101 in NepalNepalese practising Meridian 101Meridian 101 Chief Trainer Kwok Siu Ling participated in a Nepal Medical Mission Trip in Dec 2011 to render wellness education to the poor rural population in Nepal. While volunteer medical doctors diagnosed illness and dished out medicine, Siu Ling focused on preventive healthcare and helped the Nepalese villagers learn the Meridian 101 DIY form of acupressure wellness routine to enhance their health and prevent illnesses.

We are so proud of Siu Ling for her selfless service.

 

Project TOUCH IN-SIGHT 2009

This community project was conceived in partnership with the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) in June 2009 to help equip the Visually Impaired (VI) with Meridian 101 self-healing and livelihood skills. We designed a special Meridian 101 mentoring program and through August/September 2009, a team of volunteer Meridian 101 trainers contributed their time and skills to help transform eight VI brothers and sisters of SAVH to become the very first batch of Meridian 101 VI Ambassadors.

Thanks to Meridian 101 Trainers Theingi Soe and Joey Tan, and Meridian 101 Ambassadors Cecilia Lim and Kenny Foo for their seva.

M101 Mentors for VHs

Meridian 101 Volunteer Mentor Team

Theingi Soe
"When I took up the task of spear heading the team to impart the knowledge of Meridian Therapy to the Visually Impaired (VI), I was thinking if I could do it well, when we started practicing and working closely with the team of other volunteer trainers, we become more and more passionate about our cause. My vision is that through our knowledge and skills sharing, we could help the visually impaired acquire a skill set that they could use it to impact on the community at large and at the same also earn an income for themselves and their families. In time to come, I look forward to mentoring each and every visually impaired till they reach the stage of competency and independent professional Meridian Therapist. Throughout the course, the trainees have motivated and inspired greatly with their enthusiasm to learn, and hunger for knowledge. Their positive attitude towards life and their future always marvels and inspires me greatly. Every week, I always look forward to our lessons together, while we impart our Meridian knowledge to them, they impart their passion and love for life to all of us."

Joey Tan
"When I first volunteered for this project, I had no idea how the response will be, how much I can inspire and empower these visually and socially handicapped brothers and sisters in our society. Our objective is always to ‘teach a man to fish, rather than giving him the fish’. After working and sharing with them for more than a month, I experience a paradigm shift in me. Not only do I improve myself in teaching them the meridian skills, I must say that I learnt a lot more important values from them, in terms of their desire to be independent, their positive attitude, and how they take challenges in life. Most of all, I am completely humbled with their nature. Inevitably, I compared them to normal people like us who are blessed with full ability but yet many are easily discouraged with a negative attitude, especially during the present economic crisis. I truly experience the being of this saying: There are many things in life that you cannot control, but you can control the only things that really matter: your mind and your attitude. Throughout the course, the trainees have motivated and inspired greatly with their enthusiasm to learn, and hunger for knowledge. Their positive attitude towards life and their future always marvels and inspires me greatly. Every week, I always look forward to our lessons together, while we impart our Meridian knowledge to them, they impart their passion and love for life to all of us."

Kenny Foo
"I embarked on this project once I got to know about it in June 2009, as I wanted to impart Meridian 101 knowledge and skills to the visually impaired (VI) so that they too could utilise this skill set as a form of service to earn their own income. I was really impressed and touched by the optimism shown by all the VI throughout the duration of the course. The VIs displayed keen learning attitude with ability to pick up skills fast. I look forward to promoting the services of the VI to companies and public at large. I am also committed to ensure the VI are competent in their services resulting in continuity. I look forward to building and maintaining a long term relationship with SAVH."

Cecilia Lim
"I have always wanted to do something to give back to society in the form on doing voluntary work but have not had the opportunity. When Theingi told me about the program for the Visually Handicapped, I immediately agreed. I learnt Meridian 101 Skills in the May’09 Meridian 101 Ambassador Course, have been practicing in external workshops and with my friends. I was really amazed to see the positive outlook of all the VH friends. They are all so cheerful and to them everything is possible. They attended the lessons seriously and wholeheartedly, and that touched me deeply. I told myself I must be a good mentor to them so that they could learn to be independent and live a life that they desire without having to compromise due to their disability. Since they graduated, I have started marketing their services and I look forward to having them start their assignments and gaining expertise and independence”
