What's New in 2013?


What's new in 2013?

2012 was an eventful year for the Dalai Lama Center. We launched and gained incredible support for a new vision in British Columbia and beyond. We’re working towards a world where children are encouraged to be empathic and compassionate; to be socially responsible and engaged; to cherish the inherent interconnectedness that binds us all. Some call it social and emotional learning, we call it heart-mind well-being. We're looking forward to continuing the journey in the next year.

A brand new season of the Educating the Heart Series begins on January 30, and in May we are hosting our inaugural Heart-Mind Conference. I'd also like congratulate our Founding Director Victor Chan, who has just released his new book with the Dalai Lama, The Wisdom of Compassion. There is a lot more to come from the Dalai Lama Center. We hope you join us in 2013.

Brand New Season of the Educating the Heart Series

Children are facing increasing fear, anxiety and conflict in their day-to-day life. The spring season of the Educating the Heart Series (see right) provides parents, educators, caregivers - anyone who cares for or about children - with the tools and resources they need to prepare our children for these challenges. Take home the knowledge you can use to educate the heart.

Inaugural Heart-Mind Conference

May 9-11 in Vancouver. Join some of the leading minds in heart-mind learning as they explore How Mindfulness Helps Children Thrive. 

Mindfulness is often associated with helping children manage worries and stress.  But there is a growing body of scientific research, and evidence from practice that indicates that Mindfulness can foster development of a wider range of social and emotional abilities and competencies as well as improved relationships with others.

Speakers include: 
  • Shawn Achor
  • Adele Diamond, PhD
  • Goldie Hawn
  • Linda Lantieri
  • Jetsun Pema
  • Rob Roeser, PhD
  • Clifford Saron, PhD
