Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) and
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)

Journey of the Heart

Compassion is a journey not a destination.

Meet Kelly

Do you work in a high-stress job and need some self-compassion? After decades of working in the legal profession, I know what that feels like!

I am a lawyer/sociologist who teaches law and human behavior classes (family law, domestic violence law) at Hastings College of the Law. Years of stress from teaching, writing, and family responsibilities led me to meditation and stress management classes. Then, I discovered the program in Compassion Cultivation Training at Stanford University School of Medicine and the Mindful Self-Compassion Program founded by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer. These programs helped me learn how to treat myself with kindness, honesty, and compassion.

I loved the programs so much that I wanted to teach them! I hope you’ll join me for this 8-week journey of cultivating compassion and learn how to be your own best friend.
