A Portal to Mindfulness & Forgiveness with a buddhist monk
In Episode #35 on The Jen Mavros Show, we deepen into the understanding of Forgiveness and Mindfulness led by Tibetan Buddhist Monk, Gelong Thubten.
After he beautifully guides us through a meditation, we begin to unpack how one can forgive and really what mindfulness is.
Thubten is leading authority in teaching mindfulness and was the meditation consultant on the set of Marvel's latest movie, Dr. Strange, where he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in meditation techniques while they were filming.
He runs three training centres, has lectured on Buddhism and meditation at the top universities and travels globally sharing his sacred wisdom with others.
Truly a heart-expanding episode, that you can't miss!!
Gelong Thubten is a Buddhist monk, starting 24 years ago at Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland, Europe's oldest and largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery. He has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years in seclusion on a Scottish island, and has been trained by some of the world’s greatest masters of meditation.
Thubten specialises in teaching mindfulness meditation internationally, in businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons and addiction counselling centres. He works with major clients such as Google, LinkedIn, Lloyds Bank, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Siemens, Accenture, the NHS, Clifford Chance and Linklaters, and has lectured at Facebook HQ in the UK.
The funds raised by his work go to charity, to build mindfulness training centres which benefit many people. Thubten runs three of those centres in the UK.
Thubten was the meditation consultant on the set of Marvel's latest movie, Dr. Strange, where he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in meditation techniques while they were filming. He has lectured on Buddhism and meditation at the universities of Oxford, Helsinki and Cardiff.
Thubten has recently been signed as an author for Mindvalley, after speaking at their A-Fest conference, and he has also spoken at Wisdom 2.0 Europe, as well as Me-Convention for Mercedes Benz, which was Europe’s first SXSW Festival.
Thubten designs and delivers mindfulness programmes for 4th year medical students at the National University of Ireland, and he has lectured at Parliament on the Channel Islands. He and the neuroscientist Ash Ranpura have contributed to Ruby Wax’s latest book, “How to be Human, the Manual”, published in 2018 by Penguin.
