Workshop and talk

The Danish Center for Mindfulness is proud to present a public talk and a one-day workshop in Copenhagen with founder of Stanford University’s compassion cultivation training (CCT) course, Thupten Jinpa. For more than 30 years, he has been the official English translater for the Dalai Lama. In September, he visits Denmark.

Public talk: Compassion as a strength in daily life

Come hear the Dalai Lama's translater, founder of the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) program, Thupten Jinpa, when he visits Copenhagen in September.

Jinpa, a former Tibetan monk, will speak about how compassion can be a source of strength in everyday life. Training our capacity for compassion helps us develop a closer relationship with ourselves and others - an antidote for loneliness and animosity.

In addition to his translations of the Dalai Lama’s texts, Jinpa is author of several books, including ’A fearless heart: How the courage to be compassionate can transform our lives’. The talk is in English.

  • How to use compassion in everyday life
  • How to use compassion to regulate and handle difficult emotions  
  • How to become aware of a judging mind
  • How to use cognitive re-framing based on common humanity
  • How to understand the difference between empathy and distinguish empathy from compassion and to understand the difference between empathetic distress, compassion collapse and burnout

The workshop is in English. Nanja H. Hansen, senior CCT teacher, and researcher at the Danish Center for Mindfulness, is co-facilitating the workshop with Thupten Jinpa.
