Choden Visits The Sangha House - March 28th 2020

Choden is a Buddhist monk who teaches meditation and specialises in providing non-religious mindfulness workshops and training programmes for universities,  businesses and organisations.

Choden left his career as a lawyer to become a monk. He is now involved in developing secular mindfulness and compassion programs drawing upon the wisdom and methods of the Buddhist tradition, as well as contemporary insights from psychology and neuroscience. He is an honorary fellow of the University of Aberdeen and teaches on their postgraduate study program in mindfulness (MSc), that is the first of its kind to include compassion in its curriculum.


We have been working with Choden for 15 years and he is a good friend and colleague of the Sangha House

Choden has worked extensively with Prof. Paul Gilbert, a world expert in Compassion in psychotherapy, in the context of evolutionary psychology. They have delivered many Mindful Compassion trainings together and co-wrote the book Mindful Compassion, which is an excellent book and we highly recommend!
