COMPASSION: THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
Join us for an inspiring evening with Thupten Jinpa as he reveals how compassion can lead to more happiness, less stress, a sense of purpose, better health and a longer life.
Jinpa is a highly acclaimed thought leader and translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. His new book A Fearless Heart shows us how we can train our compassion muscle and unlock great benefits both for ourselves and others.
"A Fearless Heart is a rare book that shows how the meeting of contemplative practices with modern science can lead to offerings that are beneficial for everyone interested in deeper personal transformation" ~ The Dalai Lama
