UNIBUDS Quarterly Meditation Workshop Grahame White
Our upcoming meditation workshop will be on Vipassana Meditation. Vipassana means to "see clearly", to "see things as they are". Through this practice, we will be able to improve our awareness and attention by focusing onto the deep interconnection between mind and body, tuning into the sensations that we feel in our body and the reactions in our mind.
This meditation workshop is great for someone who wishes to deepen their meditation practice or anyone who is new to meditation. The workshop will include an introduction to Vipassana meditation, guided sessions and a Q&A session.
Kindly RSVP at email@example.com so we can confirm the number of attendees and accommodate all.
Speaker's Profile: Grahame has been involved in the Buddhist meditation practice for over 40 years. He began his study in England in 1969 before being ordained as a Buddhist monk for one year in BodhGaya, India in 1971. He took a primary role in the establishment of Vipassana meditation in the tradition of the Mahasi Sayadaw in Australia and co-founded the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre outside Sydney. He also teaches in Illawarra, Sydney areas, Hawaii and in Sri Lanka. He has also helped pioneer a workshop format that enhances the transfer of mindfulness from the formal sitting practice into daily life.

Me and My Anger
UNIBUDS WEEKLY English Dhamma Talk
Anger, rage, fury, wrath. You can call it whatever you want but it happens to us all. No matter how much we value loving-kindness, we are still human beings and we do get angry at times, even if we're just being teased. All emotions arising from anger obstructs us in our path to realisation. So how do we deal with anger when it arises? What gives birth to anger? Is there such a thing as "righteous" or "justifiable" anger?
This week will also be our last talk for the semester. We will resume next year when the university semester starts in March.
If you don't want to miss out on our last talk, come along to this week's talk. Hope to see you there!
