Nectar Care Service Courses

NCS offers training courses that integrate Buddhist teachings and palliative care practices. Through these courses, NCS strives to produce spiritual counsellors and volunteers to help terminally ill patients develop the internal strength to overcome obstacles. NCS seeks a group of committed volunteers, who have strong faith in the Buddha’s teachings, to attend the courses and join our team of volunteers to provide spiritual palliative care to the terminally ill.

  • Activities

    NCS organises activities such as introductory talks to end-of-life care, book clubs, workshops, talks, retreats, sharing through movies and case studies, and spiritual purification. The purpose of these activities is to promote awareness on education surrounding life and death


    We welcome like-minded individuals and organisations to our sponsorship program. NCS can be seen as a vehicle through which the broader Buddhist community could come together and act to provide a specialized, critical service for the benefit of all.

  • Services and Spiritual Care

    NCS has produced a specialised group of volunteers who serves to provide relief and comfort to cancer patients. The area of care includes keeping company, active listening, empathy and emotional support for patients and their families. Additionally, patients are guided to adopt a positive spiritual outlook in order to eliminate all fears, relinquish all attachments and have a sustained will to live out the rest of their lives in a peaceful and dignified manner.
