Tibet-Colloquium- Facets of Buddhism (Zoom interactive talk):

An Introduction to CBCT® – Cognitively-Based Compassion Training 

 

Dienstag, 2. Februar 2021

14 (s.t.) – 15:30 Uhr (on Zoom)

 

 

In this interactive talk, Prof. Lobsang Negi and Chandra Ehm will introduce CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training). They will begin by tracing CBCT's development from its origins in Tibetan Buddhism to being a secular and modern program employed in universities, clinics, and as personal training. They will introduce us to CBCT as a system of contemplative exercises designed to expand and strengthen compassion and how such a program can be relevant to a student, researcher or teacher in an academic context.

 

CBCT's exercises support critical insight into how mindsets and attitudes can be modified to sustain personal resilience, to foster an inclusive and more accurate understanding of others, and to support altruistic motivation.

 

With practice, informed compassion can become a spontaneous response that permeates one's life, helping to cultivate mental states and behaviors valued across cultures - such as kindness, gratitude, generosity, and warm-heartedness. In developing CBCT®, Lobsang Tenzin Negi, PhD, drew from a centuries-old Inda- Tibetan Buddhist approach called lojong, or 'thought transformation.

 

The fundamental premise is simple: that compassion is a skill that can be developed and expanded. Contemporary science supports this view, as do most religions and philosophical systems. CBCT® is therefore both independent from - and supportive of - any faith or belief tradition that values compassion

 

Dr. Lobsang Tenzin Negi is the Executive Director of the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics at Emory University where he also serves as a Professor of Pedagogy in the Department of Religion. As former Buddhist monk, he has facilitated the academic endeavors undertaken by Emory in collaboration with His Holiness the Dalai Lama since 1998.

 

Chandra Chiara Ehm is a doctoral student in Tibetology and Anthropology at the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Paris and just completed her training as a CBCT instructor. In her research as well as in her personal life Chandra Ehm has been exploring the development of contemporary forms of religious and secular contemplative practices.
