What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in meditation, inner peace and mental well-being. It is a great place to come rejuvenate your mind and body and meet new friends and like-minded individuals. It is through meditation that our mind is trained, refined, and perfected. Our ultimate aim is to promote peace and happiness in people’s lives by using the technique which is simple, effective for self-discovery and enhance purification of the mind. In the Buddhist way, meditation can be practiced by a lay person for the benefit of a happy life, as well as by a monastic for the attainment of liberation. Meditation is universal. It is not only for Buddhists, but for people of all faiths.

Our meditation sessions are conducted by Dhammakaya practitioners who have committed their lives by ordaining to teaching meditation and dhamma (reality of life). They are eager to teach their technique and wisdom on meditation methods, benefits and knowledge gained from meditation, and our true purpose. Every session will be inspiring and will help encourage one to meditate. We constantly need to be reminded on how meditating can be beneficial to our overall well being.

Before you join our group, we ask you to try meditating using guided instruction by one of the teaching monks first. You can learn more from our teacher in the meetup.
