Winter Retreat

UNIBUDS Annual Event

UNIBUDS will be holding Winter Retreat during the break at Sunnataram Forest Monastery. Come experience an unforgettable experience of a forest monastic life and explore the fresh air and peacefulness away from a busy city!

What will we be doing?
With the guidance of Phra Mana Viriyarampo, the abbot of Sunnataram and the Buddhist Chaplain for the Sydney 2000 Olypmic and Paralympic games, we will be learning meditation, Tai Chi, listening to the Dhamma, and getting involved in a sketch program. If the weather permits, we will also be bushwalking and having a BONFIRE!

What if I'm not a student, UNIBUDS member or full-on Buddhist?
The retreat - and Sunnataram itself - is about opening the doors of Buddhism for you to explore,freely. All are welcome! However, due to the limited spaces available, UNIBUDS members are prioritised and a first-come-first-serve basis applies. Please register soon so you don't miss out!

As a sign of respect to the Monastery, participants must attend the full retreat for 3 days and 2 nights.

Tuesday 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!
