Kind and Compassionate Leadership | The 14th Dalai Lama

 “A virtual conversation on ‘Kind and Compassionate Leadership’ by Sasha Havlicek. As CEO, Institute for Strategic Dialogue, she explained that the organization she leads has been working to oppose hate and misinformation.”

“With this in mind it launched the Strong Cities Network (SCN) to work to overcome polarization and extremism. It has delivered training to city officials, civil society leaders, company leaders and faith leaders in deradicalization and reintegration, particularly aiming to break down the concept of ‘othering’, the habit of seeing people in terms of ‘us’ and ‘them’.”

“Like other animals we have an array of sense consciousnesses, but what sets us apart is our intelligence. We can consider and plan for the future. Today, we are all part of a global economy and, because of technological developments, the world is becoming smaller. We have to consider the needs of the whole world and the whole of humanity because we are all the same in being human. And we have to live together.”

His Holiness Dalai Lama 27.1.2021

Mindfulness defined

“In Asian languages, the word for ‘mind’ and the word for ‘heart’ are the same word… So when you hear the word ‘mindfulness’, if you’re not in some sense automatically hearing the word ‘heartfulness’ you’re misunderstanding it. And mindfulness in any event is not a concept; it’s a way of being.

And it’s a way of being awake. “
