Workshop: Finding Inner Freedom through Loving Kindness with Michael Lobsang Tenpa

Michael Lobsang Tenpa



Sunday, December 10 (Human Rights Day)

1-4pm ET

Donation Based | Online


Although sometimes reduced to merely a practice for feeling somewhat better, loving kindness meditation (maitrī-bhāvanā in Sanskrit) is a profound method that can be seen as containing the entire path to full awakening. On a psychological level, it is a wonderful technique for establishing profound types of balance in six important dimensions of our psychological activity: ethical, conative, attentional, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual.

This 3-hour class with meditation instructor and Buddhist translator Michael Lobsang Tenpa will focus on these 6 domains and different ways of transforming them through the focused and regular practice of loving kindness. This exploration will be equally suitable for beginners and for experienced meditators who want to view the familiar practice through a new lens.

December 10 is the Human Rights Day, celebrated by the Tibetan community as the day when the Dalai Lama formally received the Nobel Peace Prize. This session is an opportunity to explore the foundational quality of kindness that lies at the root of the Dalai Lama’s work and ethical philosophy.
