About this Event

From Sleaze to Zen: The Transformative Power of Meditation

At the age of 10, he was already beating up his mother. When he was 14, he assaulted his father and almost killed him. He led a life of debauchery, violence and decadence. Then, on a trip to Thailand, he decided to stay in a monastery for a week. At the end of the week, he decided to stay on...

Take a peek into the shocking life of a young man’s search for meaning. What was supposed to be a short vacation took him on a transformative journey that lasted 7 years, including 5 years as a monk.

Feelings of fear, loss, depression or rage are common, especially when you find yourself at a crossroads. In this talk, learn from a meditation teacher who has thrived through many transitions in his life. Remember to bring your loved ones along as you will be receiving insights on how you can live a happier, more fulfilling life.

After the talk, DK will be answering your questions and spontaneously tailor a guided meditation session to anchor the collective wisdom of the evening into your subconscious.

Born and bred in Singapore, Hendrick ‘DK’’s search for happiness and meaning began in 2011 when he explored meditation in Thailand. This changed his life.

He began travelling extensively to learn from various teachers and traditions to master the pragmatic application of ancient wisdom. He spent most of his time living and practicing intensive meditation in the forest monasteries of Thailand, and Engaged Mindfulness and Applied Psychology in Plum Village France, the mindfulness practice centre of world-renown Zen master and author Thich Nhat Hanh. DK also attended intensive meditation retreats in Thailand, India, Malaysia and Australia.

DK’s many moments of awakening brought him closer to society and he felt compelled to share his insights and pave a way for society in an accessible and light-hearted style.

Having experienced profound transformations through his journey, DK felt compelled to walk alongside society so that he can guide more people in developing mindful lifestyle choices. In 2017, after training as a monk for five years, he disrobed and returned to Singapore. He founded The Hermitage, an urban sanctuary where he conducts meditation classes, Mind Mastery Training and gives public talks to people from all works of life.

DK’s story will move and inspire you. He will also be giving out a free hardcopy of his book ‘Daydreams of a Millennial Monk’. Copies are limited and given on a ‘First Come First Serve’ basis. So sign up fast!
