The Compassion Cultivating Training program trains people and groups to move through life and its challenges with a steady mind, courage, and resilience from a place of connection and inner strength.
CCT is an 8-week course, including:
- Weekly 2-hour class, with lectures, discussions, & in-class interactive exercises
- Daily meditation practices that progress from week to week
- “Homework” to help you move new practices into long term habits
Research has shown CCT can lead to:
- Job satisfaction
- Decrease prejudices and biases
- Compassion for self and others
