So as you guys know, our finals are just around the corner, and certainly towards the end of this semester, you will begin to stress over the assignments that are piling up as well as the study commitments that you have put off for far too long. You might get a little bit unorganised and anxious about the things you have to do in these couple weeks to go, but worry no more! We are here to help you get through the tough times as UNIBUDS will be holding its Meditation Workshop on 29th October 2016. So put those books away for a while, and come join us for a calming and relaxing meditation experience.
For this upcoming workshop, we are going to learn about Vipassana Meditation (Insight Meditation). It is an interesting meditation technique as the aim of meditation itself is concerned with staying in the present moment as much as you can by observing body and mind. This will be a perfect opportunity for those who are keen to develop their interest in meditation or just simply want to learn how to meditate!
Interested? Do come along and hope to see you there!
Kindly RSVP so we can confirm the number of attendees and accommodate all. Thank you!

What are the benefits of meditation? Meditation helps to relax and settle our minds from our busy daily life. It also allows us to bring awareness to the present moment and to focus on the tasks at hand.
Why not spend a small part of our day to enjoy a little bit of peace and serenity. Take this excellent opportunity to practice, breathe and look within ourselves. For further enquiries, feel free to contact me! Hope to see you there!
