Living Compassion

In 2011, look for the Dalai Lama Center's Speakers Series to showcase some of the world's greatest minds in the fields of mindfulness,  education and neuroscience. The common thread throughout this winter/spring will be the idea of "Living Compassion Inside and Out". From  the home to the classroom to the office, there are countless ways we can bring compassion into our lives. Join the DLC in 2011 and explore how you can live compassion.

Developing Mindfulness in Families, Schools and Youth - February 2

To begin the new year for the Speakers Series, Dr Mark Greenberg will give a talk at SFU Harbour Centre on February 2. Dr Greenberg believes that to create a more caring and compassionate society we need to promote skills and environments that support children, their educators and their families. He will present findings from studies nurturing mindfulness in educators and children in the classroom, mindfulness in families, and a study on the effects of yoga on youth development. (more info)
