When faced with difficulty and stress, we can meet life with steadiness and respond from a place of courage and resilience.

Stress and struggle are a natural part of life. We train people and groups to move through life and its challenges with a steady mind, from a place of connection and inner strength.

What does Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) look like?

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

What effects can I expect?

While everyone will have their own unique experience, research has shown CCT can lead to:

  • Happiness
  • Calmness
  • Acceptance of emotions as they are
  • Self-acceptance
  • Job satisfaction
  • Self-caring behavior
  • Compassion for self and others
  • Openness to receiving compassion from others
