Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi Ph.D. Is talking about Emory university’s cognitively based compassion training, which I guess is a competitor to Stanford’s program. Six key components to cultivate:
Attentional stability
Insight into thoughts and emotions
Self compassion
Impartiality
Affectionate love and empathy
Strengthening compassion

Geshe says that from his Buddhist perspective “self compassion” seemed strange, but he bases it on a Tibetan term for a deep motivation to emerge from the unhealthy patterns, transform them. I did not catch the Tibetan term.
