Session details 

Books, clothes, and boxes. These things can go from objects to a system of placement and give you the support system you need. Spark joy with decluttered spaces as you introduce austerity to the places you call home with Singapore’s First KonMari Consultant-In-Training, Amanda Ling.

The KonMari Method™ of tidying is a methodological and empathetic approach to the process of decluttering and tidying, helping one explore the personal relationship one has with each item and compassionately facing the emotional and mental blockages which tend to show up within the process. This builds the “tidying muscle” and contributes to better mental and emotional health, bringing about greater clarity and resilience and promoting productivity and better decision-making skills in all areas in life. In this two-part series with Amanda, she will share the philosophy, process and benefits of the KonMari method™ while highlighting the relationship between the external environment and your inner mental and emotional states.

About Amanda

Former rocker chick turned yogi, Amanda Ling, read and applied Marie Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” in 2015, to her home and found great connection to that method and holistic wellness. Inspired by the joy, structure and simplicity that was ignited in her life, she wanted to help others find that same spark through this simple, spiritually nourishing method. Amanda is Singapore’s first KonMari Consultant-in-Training.
