Summer retreat

UNIBUDS Bi-Annual Retreat

UNIBUDS will be holding its long awaited annual event, the Summer Retreat, in Hwa Tsang Monastery during the summer break this year, which is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a short get away from your hectic routine to learn more about the Dhamma. This is a chance you would not want to miss as the trip would definitely give you an unforgettable experience. Come and join us in learning more about monastic life and enjoy the peacefulness away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

What will we be doing?
Under the guidance of Venerable Neng Rong, the abbot of Hwa Tsang Monastery, we will be practicing meditation, listening to Dhamma talks, practicing Buddhist teaching in real life through sketch and of course have FUN with the activities!

What if I’m not a student, UNIBUDS member, nor full-on Buddhist?
All are welcome! The retreat - and the Monastery itself - is all about opening the doors of Buddhism for you to explore freely. However, due to the limited space, UNIBUDS members are prioritized and a first-come-first-serve basis will be applied. Please register as soon as possible so you don't miss out! Also, as a sign of respect to the Monastery, participants must attend the full retreat for 3 days and 2 nights.

I can’t wait! How can I register?
