What her Clients say

"Vidyamala Burch delivered an inspiring lecture to our students, faculty, and staff at Singapore Management University. We all know that physical exercise is integral to our wellbeing, but it is less well known that mental exercise, or what some call mindfulness, is just as important for any one of us who has ever suffered a counterproductive or self-defeating thought pattern.


Armed equally with the science and experienced knowledge of what she advocates, Vidyamala made a compelling case for the value of meditation in all our lives.”


Elvin T. Lim - Dean, Core Curriculum at Singapore Management University
