Tenzin Chogkyi (she/her/hers) is a Buddhist activist and teacher of both Buddhist and secular programs. She loves bridging together the worlds of Buddhist thought, current events, and the latest research in the field of positive psychology. In addition to teaching Buddhist philosophy and meditation and leading retreats, Tenzin is a certified teacher of Compassion Cultivation Training, a secular compassion training program developed at Stanford University. She also teaches the Cultivating Emotional Balance program, a secular program using contemplative techniques drawn from Buddhism for managing emotions, developed at His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s request.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has often commented that the foundation of Dharma practice is cultivating a good heart. As important as mindfulness and concentration meditations are within the Buddhist tradition, it is crucial to balance such practices with the cultivation and development of altruism, good will and care. The practice of the Four Immeasurables are the ideal technique for achieving this goal.
The Four Immeasurables, or the Four Brahmaviharas, as they are called in the Pali tradition, are loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity. These characteristics are essential qualities that when developed lead to constructive emotions, well-being and genuine happiness.
This education and practice-based online course is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners wanting to deepen their experience of the Four Immeasurables and the cultivation of heart.
