HUSH+anywhere – is a digital space of silence, where you can take time to pause and reflect, breathe to regulate your emotions, and build care and empathy for yourself and others, to foster social cohesion as well as personal and professional resilience.
The aim of the experience is to provide employees with a safe space to acknowledge, process and talk about emotions, which in turn builds psychological resilience, and to strengthen the emotional connection between colleagues. Though we are physically distancing ourselves, we believe that it is important not to emotionally distance ourselves, too.
“I didn’t know there was so much Frustration in me until I took the time to reflect how Covid-19 outbreak has affected me both on the professional and personal front.”
Our unique value proposition is Empathy – To Reconnect with our Humanity. An anonymous participant from an MNC shared, “There is an implicit dimension of diversity and inclusion learning not necessarily covered by therapeutic experts.”
Led by our Deaf Partners and co-facilitated by PIRs (Person-in-Recovery with Mental Health Issue), we will meet via video conferencing, and take you through our trademark 4 Zones of Hush: Intention, Silence, Expression, Sharing.
The Hush experience is unique because of our human-centric approach and raw design. We turn any space into one where you can immerse yourself comfortably in silent in the world of the Deaf. Stepping into their shoes allows you to experience their Perspectives, and Understand how life is truly like for them, in turn, building your empathy and encouraging actions that promote Inclusion in a diverse professional and/or personal environment.
As empathy and inclusion surfaces strongly, it ultimately becomes the bridge that reconnects you to yourself and others. Building these attributes will widen your Perspective, and when you return to your world with brand new eyes, Deepened care and compassion for yourself and others will emerge. With a heightened outlook, you can take the first step towards creating a safe environment, by being more conscious of your needs, and the needs of others around you.
Data analysis from our past sessions has shown significant increase in awareness of difficult emotions and level of connectedness, and 70% indicated the interest for following -up series. We can also customise the experience to meet your organisational’s objective
I was in the breakout room with Jason and Edmond. Jason and I are working from home, but Edmond still has to go to the worksite. He shared with us that he eats lunch alone in the carpark, and he sits on the floor because he doesn’t have anywhere else to sit. From tomorrow onwards, Jason and I will eat lunch on the floors of our homes, to let him know that we are there with him in spirit, and that he is not alone.
I wanted to plan for a 1st Birthday Celebration for my son, who was born in June. However, with the extension of the Circuit Breaker, I don’t think that will be possible at the moment. There are a lot of changes happening, and I’m filled with a lot of uncertainty. It makes me emotional because I’m not sure when things will go back to normal.
As we are using technology to interact with the Deaf, they can also get a first-hand experience in understanding how to make a space accessible for work and social purposes, which promotes inclusivity to different needs and abilities. There is an implicit dimension of diversity and inclusion learning not necessarily covered by therapeutic experts.
Often times in the busyness of life, we run around but never arrive. This 1 hour digital Hush session created a space of solitude for me to reflect and check in with myself on how I was feeling and where I was heading. A truly restorative experience!
It has been intense week but I became more centered after the session. I have learnt to simply making time to commit to own well being and to make it a regular practice.
I didn’t know there was so much frustration in me until I took the time to reflect how Covid-19 outbreak has affected me both on the professional and personal front.
My emotions were all over the place initially, but I felt very calm after the exercises, the sequence of the whole experience had made it most useful. I loved how it was so refreshing to use non-dominant hand to express our emotions where it helped to surface the unconscious mind. It was a great realization. The 1st word that came to me when we reflected on what had changed was ‘rigidity’, and the possibilities that came up were innovations and abundance of opportunities.
It felt like a one-of-a-kind type of experience as most of us had never experience such a video conference. We had deaf facilitators teaching us sign language and other facilitators guiding us through activities to share our emotions with art, all over Zoom. The team had an increase in awareness of not just their feelings, but also the fact that they are not alone. They learnt about each others’ feelings, which enabled them to empathize with one another. This promotes wellbeing as the team understands each other better and how they are coping with their emotions. Some even met new colleagues, which is highly unlikely during this period. Yes, we would definitely recommend the session to other organisations. It promotes wellbeing, connection and trust amongst the team.
