How do we do work practice?

We set our intention together at the beginning of the project, perform work with a practice in mind (which will be introduced by the team coordinator), and then dedicate the merit at the end of the project.

What kind of intentions do we set? It is up to you, but we usually perform work-practice with the benefit of others in mind. It can as simple as learning to observe your mind, or to contribute towards something positive, with the intention that others may also be benefited.
