  • 4 credits of Psychology 410

Tibet is one of the most religious countries in the world. Visiting Tibet is a rare opportunity to see a cultural philosophy regarding well-being, deeply imbued in nearly every cultural practice.  Tibetan cultural and community life models ideas regarding compassion, service to others, and dealing with anxious emotions. Tibetan community life reflects the idea that psychological flourishing is not something that can be cultivated while ignoring the well-being of others.

The goal of this course is to understand and experience teachings on happiness and well-being that come from psychological science and from Buddhism (particularly Tibetan Buddhism), through an intercultural learning experience in Tibet.  Through being immersed in authentic Tibetan community and culture, students will be able to have an anchored learning experience of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism and compare this with their studies about the psychological science of well-being and happiness. 

Join this Zoom meeting to ask the faculty leader your questions, and see photos and hear a discussion on "nying je" (generosity of spirit and warm-heartedness)
