Hush@Community - Stories of Gratitude


"Quiet yet a very powerful experience!", "Tranquility", "Transition", "Introspective", "Wisdom", "Love", "Empathy", "Gratitude", "Renewed Connectedness", "Heartwarming"

In our third installment of Hush@Community, let us invite you as we come together to share our gratitude to the everyday heroes that make a difference for others through self, and simply by being themselves.

To the mother who is a tireless caregiver to her special needs children. To the social worker who strives to improve the lives and welfare of others. To the Differently Abled individual who aims to make a difference in their own lives and others.

The art of expressing gratitude starts from one person to another, like giving a gift. At Hush@Community, we hope to see that expression come through in pairs - child to parent, colleague to colleague, friend to friend. An opportunity and space where we can express and share that unspoken gratitude.

Let us come together as one in silence , listen and express gratitude in our hearts to one another through the TeaRitual, and share your personal stories and ‘thank you(s)’ over a cup of our storytelling TeaMoods.

Hush@Community. Stories of Gratitude.

Come join the community. Let us all be thankful for who we are!

Let us thank ourselves and other amazing individuals through a Hush Experiential Inclusion with busy Executives, Everyday Heroes and our Deaf TeaRistas through silence, in silence.

"I had flashbacks of memories when I was in critical condition from a spinal surgery - I felt so relieved when I first saw my mum! It was both humbling and an honour to be at the Hush tea session today, plucking up the courage to strike up a conversation. My first Hush Experience really taught me to be thankful for every ordeal, grateful for everyone that entered my life especially my family. It also taught me to celebrate the milestones in life and continue to stay strong and march on. Though I may be struggling with independence but as long as I believe, I will eventually reach it."

- Agnes Tung (Everyday Hero - suffers from a rare disorder, Mucopolysaccharidoses, works in a social enterprise)

"Had my first Hush@Community experience and it was amazing. Spent some 40 over minutes in silence with ear plugs in my ears, eyes closed, and letting the smell and taste of a warm cup of tea guide me in my reflection of gratitude. Lots of uncanny coincidences - I was assigned to the "Leaf" table (the idea of "leaf" was going to be a feature in my upcoming team retreat), the strangers who sat next to me have someone in their immediate family whom they are providing care for, and finally, when I pulled a random card out of a deck as a post-event takeaway, the message resonated very much with my favorite quote "This, too, shall pass". Thanks Hush for creating this and for having me in this space! We must propagate this!"
Terence Quek (Business Leader - CEO, Emergenetics Asia Pacific)

"When I first came to the session, I didn't know what to do or say, but when the Deaf TeaRistas helped me to communicate without saying anything but just in sign language - I enjoyed the expression. The longer I stayed, the more I understand, and how to communicate with different people with different status. I felt the love and respect. And learnt how to sign a lot of things that I wanted to share with others! It was my first time to attend this kind of event, it was an amazing experience! Big hugs to the Hush@Community team!
- Airis Valdez (Everyday Hero - Domestic Worker)

"Being a caregiver for Wenjie who has X-linked Andrenoleukodystrophy, is bedridden and needs round the clock care, I give whatever time I have to him and the family. Being part of this experience with Hush@Community provides me with that quiet space to sharpen my caregiving focus whilst allowing me the opportunity to reconnect with the society. This brings back that little Sanity for me."
- Phua Wee Seng (Business Leader cum Everyday Hero - Caregiver)

“A few months ago, my team and I went through a reflective two hours led by "TeaRistas" from Singapore Deaf Community. We emerged with a sense of gratitude, empathy and renewed connectiveness. I repeated the experience last weekend with my wife along with some of Singapore's everyday heroes. Highly recommended."
- Paul Cobban (Business Leader - COO, DBS)

"My experience with Hush TeaBar was extremely awesome. It was the first time I can feel all alone, quiet, peace & sadness. When I closed my eyes, I can see who were there with me throughout my journey of ups & down and happiest moment. I felt so relived after the quiet reflection & I realised that there’s so much Love around me. I never felt like this before. It’s my best experience! Thank you Hush TeaBar!!"
- Single Mother (Everyday Hero - Daughters of Tomorrow)
