Dalai Lama, From “Transforming the Mind: Teachings on Generating Compassion, 2003.”
His Holiness the Dalai Lama -who serves as both the head of state and the spiritual leader of Tibet, will lead the Change Your Mind, Change the World 2013 Conference which discusses how neuroscience, environments, economics, and health care can combine to make the world a healthier, happier place. It will feature two panel discussions between His Holiness and leaders from fields including neuroscience, economics, and sustainability. Journalist and Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, and psychologist Daniel Goleman will moderate the discussions. Other panelists include Buddhist monk Mathieu Ricard, neuroscientist Richard Davidson, economist Lord Richard Layard, and health leaders Jonathan Patz, Don Berwick, and Ilona Kickbusch. Organizers say the Dalai Lama will respond to the insights of these “thought leaders” and add his own views on how to continue to promote these ideas in the world.
