Individual Testimonials

“A few years ago,  I discovered that meditation could help clear my migraine attacks - 30 minutes for a mild attack but 45 minutes to an hour for a severe attack. This works about 98% of the time.  At times I could feel the pain gradually dissipate while I was meditating!

Meditation can help relieve the discomfort of a bloated stomach.

It releases tension from the body. Meditation also lifts my mood when I feel down and out.”

Koh L. K.

“I had been a mental wreck, suffering from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder when my mother registered me for the mindfulness course at Brahm Centre. At first I was really skeptical about what mindfulness was, but the effects were undeniable. The exercises helped relax my body and calm my mind at a time when I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Now, I use mindfulness in my daily life and it’s been so helpful especially in interactions with my parents. After finishing the mindfulness course, I was looking to do something meaningful and decided to become a full-time volunteer at Brahm Centre.

At Brahm Centre, compassion seems to be the universal language spoken; everyone was so welcoming in making me feel like a part of the family. On my first day, I accompanied Angie to the nursing home and met long-time resident Madam Lim, age 70, a stroke patient who told us how she had not seen her bed-ridden daughter, Lisa, for over two years. We decided then to help Madam Lim fulfill her wish of seeing her daughter. We made arrangements for a van to transport Madam Lim to her house. When Lisa saw Madam Lim being wheeled in, she broke into a huge smile and called out “Mummy”. It was heartwarming to see mother and daughter joyfully reunited, and it made me so thankful for all the moments I had spent with my loved ones. Instances like this certainly made my volunteer stint at Brahm Centre all the more worthwhile.”
