Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education
The Dalai Lama Center is inspired by the Dalai Lama’s vision for 21st century education. His belief that a balance between educating the mind and educating the heart will help create a more compassionate and peaceful world is the cornerstone of the Center’s mission. We work to inform, inspire and engage the adults who care for and teach children in homes, schools and community learning environments. By sharing current research, scientific knowledge, resources and best practices related to social and emotional learning, the Center is a leading advocate for change in how we educate our children. During the three-week field experience teacher candidates would work with our team on one of our initiatives that focuses on educating the hearts of children and adults in the school environment. In the past candidates have helped to produce social and emotional resources and tools for educators and also resources for our website Heart-Mind Online. They have also contributed to the design of professional workshops that are delivered in schools.
