The Center is based on the Tibetan Buddhist lineage, the spiritual tradition of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. We are part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) (http://fpmt.org/), an international family of city and retreat centers, monasteries, publishing houses, hospices, and healing centers that share that purpose.

This organization is run by individuals dedicated to providing an integral educational experience through which minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of all sentient beings. By following an attitude of universal responsibility, we seek to create harmonious environments everywhere and offer these teachings. The spiritual director for the Center is Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

The Center hosts weekly Buddhist teachings, guided meditations, classes and other related events. We are located at 6490 South McCarran Blvd. Building D1 Suite 41 in Reno, Nevada.

An Open-Hearted Life: Transformative Methods for Compassionate Living from a Clinical Psychologist and a Buddhist Nun
Russell Kolts and Ven. Thubten Chodron

A life overflowing with compassion. It sounds wonderful in theory, but how do you do it?
This guide provides practical methods to living with this wonderful quality, based on methods from modern psychology--particularly a technique called Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and
traditional Buddhist teachings and . The methods presented by the two authors--a psychotherapist and a Tibetan Buddhist nun--turn out to have a good deal in common. In fact, they complement each other in wonderful ways. Each of the 64 short chapters ends with a reflection or exercise for putting compassion into practice in various life situations.

We’d like to invite you to learn to live with an open heart by putting the reflections at the end of each chapter into practice each day and getting together with this discussion group bi-weekly to share your experiences as you bring more joy, happiness and compassion into your life.

Loving Kindness (Tonglen) Meditation

Needs a location

$5.00

The practice of tong-len, giving and taking, encapsulates the practices of loving-kindness and compassion. Atisha wrote: “Because of the negative result of the faults of attachment and confusion, habituate the mind to exchanging self and other.” By engaging in this meditation practice we learn to think more about giving to others and less about our own selfish desires.

Join us for this amazing meditation practice and reap the benefits of learning how to generate loving kindness and compassion in your life.
