Dr. Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi: Compassion During a Pandemic

Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, PhD, is Executive Director of the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics at Emory University and Director of the Emory Tibet Science Initiative. Among Dr. Negi’s many accomplishments is developing Cognitively Based Compassion Training, or CBCT, a highly influential meditation program, which is a major focus of our discussion in this podcast, and which forms a foundation for Social, Emotional, and Ethical (SEE) Learning, an innovative K-12 education program being adopted by school systems around the world. In addition to his work with compassion meditation and education, Dr. Negi leads efforts that are revolutionizing Tibetan Buddhist monastic education by introducing training in modern science as a core competency in monastic training.Featuring:Dr. Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, Executive Director of the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics at Emory University, Director of the Emory Tibet Science InitiativeHost:Charles Raison, Psychiatrist, Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Emory UniversityAbout Emory University's Center for the Study of Human Health:The Emory Center for the Study of Human Health was developed to expand health knowledge and translate this knowledge to all aspects of life – for the individual and populations as a whole.
