How to Overcome Pressure and Stress

It might be a similar topic to last Thursday but if you didn’t come then you would be silly to miss this one. Jim Teoh was unable to make it this week so Dr Chien will be speaking to us in his place.
Dr Chien Hoong Gooi is a Buddhist teacher and Clinical Psychologist who seeks to integrate western psychology with the practices of Buddhist meditation. He was previously involved in clinical research applying mindfulness practices in the treatment of anxiety disorders at The University of Sydney and also served as the Buddhist Chaplain at the University of New South Wales. He is currently a committee member for the Australian Association of Buddhist Counselors and Psychotherapists (AABCAP) and a Trustee of the Buddhist Library. He presents regular mindfulness meditation courses at universities, Buddhist groups and to the general public as part of his involvement in community outreach.
When:  4:30pm Р6pm, Thursday, May 26th
Where: Holme Meeting Room 1, Holme Building (A09)
Cost: Free for everyone.

As we come to the end of another semester we would like to thank all of you for your support of Unibodhi. Without you, our members, we wouldn’t be a society that we are today. Keep the support going and we look forward to seeing you next semester. Bhante Pandit had some useful advice last Thursday: smile before the exam and chew gum or eat something (to make your body think it is calm because you tend not to eat when you have adrenaline release). Remember, some stress is good but too much stress is bad.¬†Best wishes in your studies and exams ūüôā

With Metta,
Darren L. (Secretary)
on behalf of the Unibodhi Executive
