Path of Transformation

What is Dignity? Can It Be Trained?

Description

In March 2023, Phakchok Rinpoche visited Jackson Hole, Wyoming for his 2023 Awakening Dignity book launch tour. In this teaching, Rinpoche explains what dignity is, and how we can awaken our innate dignity through a series of simple dignity training exercises.

Phakchok Rinpoche’s book, Awakening Dignity: A Guide to Living a Life of Deep Fulfillment, contains reflections, examples, and simple meditations. We are introduced to practices such as embracing adversity and developing compassion. When we use these tools regularly to create new habits, we can embody our fundamental dignity fully.
