The Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics will host a virtual Tibet Week this year. The week will kick-off with a day-long virtual film festival featuring three spectacular films. Each film will be followed by a Q & A with the director. The same link can be used at any time during the day. 

1:00 - 3:30pm EST — Upper Story: On the Road to Well-Being, written and directed by Alessandra Pedrotti Catoni

Today, over 10% of the global population suffers from mental health problems. Three decades of collaboration between His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Buddhist scholars and the most brilliant neuroscientists has led to the discovery of the incredible potential of the human mind and how it can be trained to improve our mental well-being. The eternal conflict between science and religion has finally found common ground.

Followed by a Q & A session with writer and director Alessandra Pedrotti Catoni



4:00 - 6:30pm EST — The Dalai Lama: Scientist written and directed by Dawn Engle

An uplifting and optimistic documentary about the Dalai Lama's meetings with scientists from around the world to find commonalities among Buddhist science and western science to promote health, understanding and compassion for all. The Dalai Lama tells, in his own words, of his lifelong journey into the world of science and technology. With never before seen footage, this film tells the very human story of the Dalai Lama that no one knows.

Followed by a Q & A session with writer and director Dawn Engle

 

7:00 – 9:30pm EST — Bringing Tibet Home written and directed by Tenzin Tsetan Choklay

When New York based Tibetan artist Tenzing Rigdol’s father passes away in exile with an unfulfilled wish to take his last breath in Tibet, Tenzing realizes that his father’s dream to return home to his lost nation is shared by all Tibetans in exile. Driven by this realization, the artist embarks on a mission to reunite the Tibetan land with its people, literally, through an art project that involves smuggling 20,000 kilograms of native Tibetan soil to India.

Followed by a Q & A session with writer and director Tenzin Tsetan Choklay
