4-Week Mindfulness Zen Meditation
Time & Location
About the Event
If you want to learn mindfulness and meditation, it’s best to learn it from someone who has received intensive training under a mentor from a proper lineage!
Having received transmissions from authentic meditation masters and now making it relevant to modern linguistics and psychology, this 4-week program is designed by our spiritual community of long-term practitioners to ensure you establish a strong foundation in your meditation and mindfulness practice.
Unlike other meditation techniques, Zen is a simple, yet profound practice that focuses on the essentials. Its methods and teachings are uncomplicated, yet deeply transformative. Zen Meditation offers us the opportunity to improve our well-being, rediscover inner peace and find balance; we emerge feeling fresher and lighter.
The benefits of having a meditation practice begins within the mind through cultivating clarity and tranquility - you achieve a greater sense of appreciation and concentration. These benefits will naturally spill into every area of your life and transform your day-to-day experience.
This program will be experiential because this has proven to be the most effective way for people to reset, learn and integrate mindfulness practices into their daily life. Not only will you rediscover inner peace, you will learn to make it stick by applying valuable tools learnt in this program to weave mindfulness and self-compassion into both your work and personal lives.
This program will run over 4 Saturdays in May and will be held in the meditation hall of Buddhaguna Buddhist Temple.

About The Facilitator
Alwin grew up in a family with a strong affinity to Avalokiteshvara. His journey began when he was 15, after the passing of his maternal grandmother lead him to search for meaning in Buddhist Scriptures. This path lead him to healing modalities and subsequently to Zen, which he now views as Life's way of bringing him back to what is important. Zen philosophical writings shaped his way of thinking and laid the foundation for his subsequent practices.
Sparks of wisdom led him along and he found teachers in both Eastern and Western Philosophy. He started sharing these texts with friends and soon realised his passion in sharing knowledge with loved ones. After a decade of walking the path without a guide, he realised that it was time to deepen his practice with a community and look for teachers grounded in pragmatic approaches. He started the search for compassion-based practices, and was quickly recommended the The Hermitage Zen by a virtuous friend.
Through his teacher's (Dhammakamo) teachings, Alwin experienced profound transformations to his practice and is now even more motivated to share what he received with those around him and beyond. The practice has also led him out from the concrete jungle and into a farm. The change allowed him to reconnect with Nature and contribute to its well-being through sustainable biotechnology.
Alwin presently teaches Mindfulness and Loving-Kindness based practices, and serves as The Hermitage Community's esoteric specialist.
