Queen Anne's Pupils Experience Buddhism Meditation Session

Thursday 13th March 2014

On Tuesday 11 March, the Religion and Philosophy Department was pleased to welcome Gen Wangmo, a Buddhist nun from the Shantideva Buddhist centre in Reading to Queen Anne’s.

Gen Wangmo talked to some of the U4 year group about Buddhism and her experience of being a nun and also led them in a meditation session. It was a highly successful visit and the girls found the experience interesting and informative. Here are a selection of their comments:

“It felt very calm”

“She was really captivating”

“It was something new and interesting”

“It was good to have the experience of meditating with a proper Buddhist and have her guide us through the meditation”.

“Her clothing and appearance were interesting”

“We could tell she was telling us the truth”
