How Our Model of Engagement Effects Change
Through this four-tiered model of grantee engagement, TPP aims to support grantees in their efforts to deepen their own contemplative practices. Through facilitating authentic and vulnerable connection to others around the world and modeling the importance of process over outcome in our own work, we enable grantees to do their work from a place that is more deeply rooted in compassion, with greater resilience, and with more capacity for self-compassion and equanimity.
In turn, our grantees are provided with opportunities to see our shared humanity made visible; to empathize and see good across the planet; to question their own assumptions, position, and perspective; and to gain increased understanding of the interconnectedness of all life.
By leveraging these opportunities, TPP and our grantees are able to break down barriers, reduce othering, and join in the power of our shared capacity for good – no matter where that takes place, what that looks like, or in what language the work is done.
