Compassion Meditation Founder Joins Norton School Faculty

Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi is joining the UA's John & Doris Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences, in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, to research and promote compassion training at the UA.

Cognitively based compassion training, also known as CBCT, is derived from Tibetan Buddhist practices for enhancing empathy and increasing awareness of interconnectivity with others.
