The Interior Landscape of Compassion

“It is in compassion that we feel most at home and feel most whole. We feel that we are where we should be.”
—Ingrid Mattson

There’s an “inner voice” of compassion in the mystical, contemplative traditions. Thupten Jinpa, a Tibetan Buddhist and the Dalai Lama’s translator for more than 30 years takes up this idea with Christian contemplative teacher Cynthia Bourgeault, and Muslim educator Ingrid Mattson.

We’re curating a masterclass on compassion for you this week from the Festival of Faiths in Louisville, Kentucky. You can keep up with all of the conversations as they happen on the Festival of Faiths Facebook page — and if you missed it, watch Karen Armstrong and others on Compassionate Cities, and Naomi Tutu, Rami Nashashibi, and Kevin Cosby on the messy work of compassion in our personal and public lives.
