In October 2018, Cathy Ashton led seven people to explore China and Tibet to look for a common experience of compassion in another culture. This trip included nine days in Tibet, which carries a history of deepening and living compassion. It is a place that holds important significance in the practice of Buddhism. Cathy first traveled to Tibet in 1993, and this being her 10th trip, including a pilgrimage circling the sacred Mount Kailash in the center of Tibet. She brings insight into the challenges of Chinese dominance of what Tibetans hold most precious in their temporal and spiritual lives.

This presentation includes photographs showing changes Cathy has observed in Tibet over time. There will be a discussion of the gifts Tibetans give to the world, as well as a challenge to confront how a culture of compassion is kept alive under very destructive circumstances.

Cathy Ashton teaches Buddhism and mindfulness meditation at the Federal Medical Center and rings the bell for a meditation practice at Assisi Heights. She spearheaded Rochester joining the worldwide Charter for Compassion as a Compassionate City in 2017.
