Sharing Zone

  • Guests will be able to share their experiences and reflections with each other - this also serves as a decompression for them to get from Hush back to Rush so they won't be too disoriented in the hearing/talking world again!

I Want To Bring Hush To My Workplace

Intention Zone

  • Guests get to select, multi sensorially, their tea (we call TeaMoods) that resonates with how you feel at that moment, or how you would like to feel. (Our teas are called TeaMoods because we believe each blend presents an opportunity for the guest to reconstruct his/her emotions and moods). We have 12 TeaMoods, all caffeine-free and made of flowers, fruit and herbs. 
  • After selecting the tea, guests will be asked to surrender their mobile devices -
    a symbolic gesture for them to step into the Hush zone next as silence is not just from the absence of external noise, but is also about the inner stillness.

  • They will then pick an Intention Card of positive thoughts and intentions (written by those who have Hushed before them) as part of the Hush-It-On movement.

Hush Zone

  • Guests will be guided through one of our TeaRituals by our lead TeaRistas. These TeaRituals could be about using all 5 senses to appreciate the tea, or using tea to encourage breath and body awareness or could be to reconstruct the way they manage a difficult person/situation with each sip.
  • After the demonstration where they learn to sign the ritual, guests will imbibe the tea through the practice of the TeaRitual on their own. In silence, in their own space, and at their own pace.

Expression Zone

  • Guests will be given the space to express their reflections and experiences during 
    Hush (TeaRitual) through TeaArt (painting with tea as ink).

  • After which, guests will write an Intention Card (Hush-It-On to the next guest), origami, free-form writing, etc. Again, in silence, at their own pace.

I Want To Bring Hush To My Workplace

Workplace stress has been steadily on the rise with 1 in 4 Singaporean workers reporting high stress levels (2014 Health Promotion Board survey). A 2014 Morgan Mckinley survey stated 82% of professionals in Singapore felt that they are overworked. Psychiatrists in Singapore shared that 90% of their patients are grappling with mental health issues caused by stress from work. This mental health epidemic seems to have its root cause in the workplace – a pressing social need not to be ignored. And it is trending all over the world. 


Hush was founded with the deep desire to serve the overworked, highly-stressed world that we live in.

And most of that stress comes from the workplace. Hush@Workplace is a new responsibility model where companies can transform responsibility into opportunity by integrating the need for innovative employee wellness initiatives with a
community-empowerment effort.


Much research has shown that regular practice of mindfulness yields tremendous benefits at the workplace for both employees
​and employers. Employees make more strategic and thoughtful choices, form better relationships with co-workers and deliver better performance and results.


​We can conduct scheduled popup Hush sessions for your employees, customers and community. A permanent space could also be carved out in your common area(s) as a 'Hushlet' to inspire and motivate employees to practise mindfulness regularly so as to more effectively manage stress and consistently deliver better results. The more Hush@Workplace sessions we run, the more employment opportunities​ we provide for our deaf TeaRistas. 

We will work with you to bring Hush to your workplace in the most impactful way for your employees and community. Hush wants to bring
Rush to Hush to every workplace. A unique responsibility model for your people, customers and community.


Happy Employees. Thoughtful Choices. Better Business. A Better World. 


























​Current and upcoming Hush@Workplace Leaders who are bringing Hush@Workplace to their employees, customers and partners include 









 














​​"Hush TeaBar was with us last year and brought to our offices the wonderful experience of ‘Rush to Hush’. This social movement
impressed me with its calm and creative approach to the social challenge of hearing impairment. I am a very coffee person but experiencing
the TeaRitual at the Hush TeaBar was interesting on many levels, as it took me on a reflective journey. The TeaRistas from the silent world
touched the hearts and souls of many at DBS"

- Dave Gledhill, Managing Director – Technology & Operations (T&O), DBS Bank



"We encourage staff to contribute to our diversity and wellness initiatives and we first connected with Hush through a deaf member of
our team.  We ran 4 sessions for staff during a Friday afternoon with small groups of up to 10 to maintain a feeling of space and calmness.
This was the first time myself and many of our staff had experienced mindfulness in this way and the comments on the experience were overwhelmingly positive. The most significant moments were actually at the end of the sessions where we were encouraged to share with others our experiences which created a stronger team bond. Our staff each took away their own lessons but for many of us it was the realization that just making time in the day to take a short break in silence can be very refreshing and help relieve much of the stress we
can get from work and life." 

- Joe Tofield, Head of Diversity & Inclusion, British Council Singapore

 
"I believe that such (Hush) sessions are useful for our cancer support group patients and staff. We often treat symptoms with drugs,
but if patients can tap their psychological reserves, they will be more aware of how they can help themselves instead of being filled
with fear about the future." 

- Dr. Donald Poon, Medical Director, Raffles Hospital Group 







​Come join us in this movement of silence and social consciousness! 

Please help spread the word so that we can bring Hush, the Silent TeaBar, to more workplaces for busy working executives and create more employment opportunities for our friends from the deaf community.

In today's rush, we all think too much - seek too much - want too much - and forget about the joy of being.
