Tibetan Buddhist teacher Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will be in Easthampton, MA for a rare teaching and book signing to celebrate the release of his new book Training in Tenderness: Buddhist Teachings on Tsewa, the Radical Openness of Heart that Can Change the World.

In Buddhism, one of the most essential qualities of enlightenment is tsewa: a warm, open heart. It is the warmth we express and receive through an empathic connection with others, especially those closest to us. In this talk, Rinpoche will share ways to further develop our own tender openness of heart that we can express toward ourselves and those around us.

Praise for Training in Tenderness

"Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche is one of the most highly qualified people I know. . . . I am hopeful that Rinpoche’s new book will help many of us get to know and make the best of our own warmth of heart. May Training in Tenderness help to heal the anxiety and polarization of our world!" —Pema Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart
"A warm and affectionate heart frees us from whatever binds us and connects us empathetically with all beings. This simple yet life-changing attitude makes our own life meaningful and has the power to heal the world. I strongly encourage anyone who encounters Kongtrul Rinpoche’s beautiful book to take its profound wisdom to heart." —Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, author of The Joy of Living
"Kongtrul Rinpoche delivers a series of profound explorations and expositions on one of the most important aspects of our spiritual practice—uncovering the tender warmth and affection in our hearts. This tenderness is the root source of all that is truly beneficial in the world. Rinpoche leads us through a foundational training for compassionate vision and our own liberation, with joyful diligence and an open heart." —Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Love
