Event Details

Happiness & Compassion

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 educator on the subject of compassion. He has also served for many years as the principal English translator for the Dalai Lama. By connecting with our compassionate nature, we can build habits which allow us to respond to challenges with greater skilfulness and wisdom.

Jinpa's 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" ~ The Dalai Lama

About The Speaker

Thupten Jinpa Langri (known as Jinpa) was born in Tibet and received his early education and training as a monk in South India. Since 1985, he has been principal English translator to the Dalai Lama and has translated and edited more than ten books by His Holiness.

Jinpa is founder and president of the Compassion Institute, chair of the Mind and Life Institute and adjunct professor at the Faculty of Religious Studies, McGill University. He is also the principal author of Compassion Cultivation Training © (CCT™), an 8-week course developed at the Stanford University School of Medicine Neurosciences Institute, and now housed at the Compassion Institute. His book A Fearless Heart: Why compassion is the key to greater wellbeing is based on this course.

"A Fearless Heart is the bravest, clearest and most engaging book I know on why we need to cultivate compassion, and on how to bring it more widely and deeply into our lives and into the world ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
