About the Instructor:
A disciple of Singha Rinpoche since 2005, Keith's expertise as an entertainer was put to good use when he was invited by Thekchen Choling Youth Group in 2012 to coach them in singing, dancing and acting. This experience ignited his passion in teaching. He then started to teach our yearly Basic Buddhism course from 2014. 
Having a keen interest in meditation, Keith actually started attending retreats in Thailand even before he became a Buddhist; and has led and facilitated meditation practices and retreats with Thekchen Choling Singapore and Melaka since 2016.
