The Telluride Institute and Stanford University School of Medicine’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education host a series of events to celebrate the 2013 Compassion Season. Events will include discussions about recent developments in the field of compassion and altruism research.
In 2009, at the request of His Holiness the 14th Dali Lama, CCARE partnered with institutes and universities around the world to research and develop a deeper scientific understanding of compassion, altruism and mindfulness. Because many of CCARE’s conferences and research findings have been private, it has partnered with organizations like the Telluride Institute to hold public forums.
“We hope to get the chance to be involved in the most recent research into the nature of what it means to be human,” said Pamela Lifton-Zoline, founding director of the Telluride Institute. “We also hope to build with CCARE and other higher education that will serve to advance our understanding of ourselves, our social and environmental relationships and the know-how to act on that understanding.”
