"Compassion is a marvel of human nature, a precious inner resource and the foundation of our well-being and the harmony of our societies." The Dalai Lama
"Compassion" and "well-being" are everyday terms – but how often do we stop to think about what they might really mean?
With his customary warmth and humour, and drawing on his decades of life experience and extensive practice of meditation, the Dalai Lama will share what compassion means to him and how this understanding can enrich our lives.
"When compassion, or warm-heartedness, arises in us and shifts our focus away from our own narrow self-interest, it is as if we open an inner door. Compassion reduces our fear, boosts our confidence, and brings us inner strength. By reducing distrust, it opens us to others and brings us a sense of connection with others and a sense of purpose and meaning in life."
The Dalai Lama will give this talk mainly in English. There will be an interpreter on stage to translate from any Tibetan into English. BSL interpretation will also be available.


Daniel Goleman, science journalist and psychologist, wrote "Emotional Intelligence". His new book is "A Force for Good: The Dalai Lama's Vision for Our World," which outlines the positive steps we each can take to create a better future. He is on the board of directors of the Mind and Life Institute, and a co-founder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning.
