Meditation Workshop - Loving-Kindness Meditation

UNIBUDS Quaterly Meditation workshop
Venerable Neng Rong

Hope all of you are coping well with university life! As you know, the end of the semester is getting closer, meaning there are assignments that need to be done and a lot of studies to be completed (catch-up lectures oops! :p) in order to face the final exam. Therefore, UNIBUDS presents you with the second meditation workshop of the year which is Loving-Kindness Meditation to calm your mind and body before the storm.

This upcoming workshop introduces a form of meditation which focuses on building our loving-kindness trait, which can be integrated into our daily life. The workshop includes an introduction to the topic along with guided meditation sessions and discussions. So come along and join us in this workshop!

Kindly RSVP so we can confirm the number of attendees and accommodate all. Thank you!

    Tuesday & Wednesday Afternoon Meditation

    UNIBUDS WEEKLY Meditation

    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!
