With His Holiness
The 12th Chamgon
Kenting Tai Situpa

Occupy the peaceful calm that comes from a higher consciousness so you can be a source of light and joy in the world.


Spiritual practices provide a refuge from life’s storms and a way to connect with a higher part of ourselves that transcends our conditions, often bolstering our spirits in the face of daunting worldly challenges. 

The Buddha himself found his own path to enlightenment only after he left his opulent palace and his sheltered life to face the turmoil and strife of the world, which led him to observe that the First Noble Truth is “life means suffering.”

No matter your circumstances, the path away from suffering is available in times of societal distress; there is freedom beyond this global pandemic, economic uncertainty, and continued racial injustice.

In this special hour, one of the most respected Tibetan Rinpoches (meaning Precious One in Tibetan), H.H. the 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa (a teacher of Tibetan Buddhism over the last 12 lifetimes), will offer wise and loving reflections on how we can elevate our consciousness, even when we're faced with trying circumstances.

Through the practice of centering our awareness on our higher nature, we are fortified to weather outer storms and emanate peace, love, and joy.

This shift, what His Holiness calls “supreme consciousness,” is not just for our own benefit — it offers an uplifting path of hope and possibility, benefiting all those we serve.

As we learn to reside in our own state of inner harmony, we're able to radiate goodness wherever we go.


In this 60-minute free online event with timely teachings and practices taught by His Holiness, you’ll:

  • Receive a meditation practice that shifts you from feeling overwhelmed by the world’s problems to discovering the clear sky of compassionate awareness
  • Appreciate how to hold your own suffering more lightly so that you are less identified with it
  • Receive deep insights into the nature of denser emotions like fear, anger, and greed, while lifting your awareness to a place beyond them
  • Understand how the world operates as “one body” — how harm in one area of the world ripples out everywhere and how we can choose to send positive ripples instead
  • Open to a deeper understanding of how your imagination can serve to activate your higher consciousness
  • Recognize why laughter and humor hold important keys to uplifting your consciousness

His Holiness is not only a revered teacher, scholar, and guide to Tibetan Buddhist practices, he emanates a playful, humble grace that endears him to those who come to him for guidance.

You’ll also hear about an opportunity to dive deeper into His Holiness’ teachings in a way that also spreads more wisdom in the world.
