The Lane Community College Peace Center and the Palmo Center for Peace and Education are hosting a talk by Geshe Thupten Jinpa, Ph.D., the longtime English translator for the Dalai Lama. The talk is titled “Fearlessness and Compassion: Cultivating the Courage to Transform Our Lives and Our World.”
Jinpa’s work furthers people’s understanding of the power of compassion for others and for their own well-being. He will address questions such as: Can compassion be cultivated? Can compassion lead to being taken advantage of, or compromising our ambitions?
Jinpa will be sharing practical skills for developing compassion and sharing stories of transformation resulting from cultivating compassion. He will share his own experience and lessons learned from living in, and moving from, a monastery in India to fatherhood in Montreal.
Sunday, May 10, 3:30 p.m. — 5:30 p.m.
Ragozzino Hall, Building 6, LCC main campus.
