About this event

Sundays, Nov. 7, 14, 21, 28 and Dec. 5, 12 | 11am-1pm ET

$60 to attend all 6 sessions (single session registration not allowed).

Creating Compassionate Identities is a training program that arose at the intersection of social engagement and contemplative practice.

Inspired by the ideas and teachings of the Indian philosopher Shantideva — and the "universal responsibility" teachings of the Dalai Lama — CCI takes the participants through three consecutive steps that help them establish a better foundation for compassionate perception of the world and wise commitment to social change.

The essence of the three steps—"rebuilding", "enhancing" and "expanding"—lies in tapping into our potential (the clear, spacious nature of our awareness) while also harnessing the energy of our conventional selves and using it to become more respectful, compassionate and helpful for others.

CCI was originally co-developed by Lobsang Tenpa and Christian Howard and offered to the first engaged Buddhism community in Moscow. It eventually became a program that is regularly offered to the contemplative communities across Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Lobsang Tenpa is a certified Cultivating Emotional Balance teacher, meditation instructor and Buddhist translator. Born in Siberia, he got his BA and MA in South Asian Studies at the diplomatic college in Moscow and went on to become an ordained monastic and a translator in the Tibetan contemplative tradition. In addition to his Buddhist studies and translator work, Tenpa has been working with secular ethics and secular mindfulness courses for almost a decade. Further developing his skills while studying in Nepal, the UK and the US, he has taught and led short and long-term retreats in Europe, Asia and North America. In addition, he has served as the interpreter for such teachers as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Venerable Thubten Chodron, Dr. Alan Wallace, Glen Svensson, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and many others. https://lobsangtenpa.com.

"My passion in this work is helping people find a deep yet accessible level of contemplative practice that comes out of the profound Buddhist methods & helps them establish a meaningful and deeply satisfying lifestyle imbued with a sense of compassionate responsibility."
