About this Event

FREE but registration required

We will transition into spring together as a community with a free meditation on March 20th to welcome the first day of spring. Spring is about reawakening, warmth, sensation, and the creative process taking over. Guided by Elizabeth Pyjov, the meditation will combine elements of mindfulness, compassion, self-compassion, and visualization. Flowers, light, and the spirit of opening will all make an appearance. Join Tibet House US for this special, free 20-minute one time event to help us connect to each other and put us in rhythm with the season. After this meditation, you will be ready to invite spring into your heart, body, and mind. Everyone is welcome to join, whether you are an experienced meditator or an absolute beginner.

Saturday, March 20; 3-3:20 pm EST

Elizabeth Pyjov, JD, MTS holds three Harvard degrees and has taught over 30 programs at Tibet House US in the last eight years. Her background is varied and diverse. She studied the neuroscience, philosophy, and pedagogy of compassion at Stanford Medical School with the Stanford Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. Elizabeth graduated from magna cum laude from Harvard University with a degree in Romance Languages and Literatures and the Classics. She finished a joint degree at Harvard Law School (J.D.) and Harvard Divinity School (MTS, Buddhist Studies) in 2020. She has taught compassion meditation at Stanford University, Harvard Law School, Columbia University, NYU Medical School, Deutsche Bank, Novartis, Warby Parker, the Rubin Museum, Horace Mann, and the Harvard Club of New York. In the past, Elizabeth has worked for the Global Justice Center, the NY Attorney General’s Office, and Click Therapeutics in New York City; for Italian television at RAI International in Rome; the United Nations in Geneva; and at the Stanford Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) in Palo Alto, CA. She has worked or studied in Argentina, Italy, France, Peru, Switzerland, Russia, and Spain. Her international experience has led her to understand that among those of different traditions, customs, and religions, people find happiness in many of the same ways. They want to be healthy, do meaningful work, and be close to loved ones—and what brings joy is kindness, a caring attitude, and compassion. She is delighted to be teaching compassion in New York City and over Zoom. Please reach out to her anytime at epyjov@jd20.law.harvard.edu.
