We are an official AMS club here at UBC whose main offering is meditation sits on campus for all of those that are interested.
Our main goal is to help members learn and develop a formal meditation practice in order to promote well-being and overall health. For some of the many benefits of meditation check out this link https://www.artofliving.org/ca-en/benefits-meditation-you-never-knew
All first classes are free! and then it is only $10 for students or $12 for non-students for full access to all of our sits for the year (see our sign up page for instructions on how to officially become a member)
All of our sits will take place in the AMS Nest.
*Sits start Monday September 11th!
*Here is a floor plan for the second floor of the Nest.
