Hear Ösel, the GTI founder, at The Compassion and Wisdom in Action Conference

The Foundation for Compassion and Wisdom (FDCW) invites you to this year’s Compassion and Wisdom in Action conference!
A space to explore the potential for compassionate and wise action in all aspects of our lives, our relationships, and the world around us.

FDCW requested a message of inspiration from their patron, the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama is also the inspiration behind the Global Tree Initiative.

The message from the Dalai Lama emphasizes inner peace. Experiencing a peaceful reality comes from peace within ourselves. This is not a religious idea.
The Dalai Lama tells us that secular ethics is the key to inner peace.

Have a look at this inspiring message from the Dalai Lama:

As part of the Compassion and Wisdom in Action conference, our founder, Tenzin Ösel Hita, will be in conversation with colleagues and friends about topics such as:

– What’s the best way to develop a warm heart?
– What kinds of changes do we need to make in the way we live?
– Do we have reasons to be hopeful?

Ösel’s talk will take place on 15 November 2021, 4 pm to 5:30 pm GMT.
