Compassion Cultivation Training™ (CCTTM) is a program designed to help you strengthen compassion, empathy, and loving kindness for yourself and others. Participants learn to nurture a calm and compassionate attitude to meet the challenges of everyday life. Developing the qualities of strength, courage, and resilience in the face of suffering can support a wide range of goals – from improving personal and work relationships to making a positive difference in the world.
The key to developing compassion in your life is to make it a daily practice. When striving for happiness, it becomes tremendously important that we cultivate and practice compassion every day. The CCT course can show you how to practice mindfulness and increase self-compassion and self-care, reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and enhance connection with others.
The combination of traditional contemplative practices, contemporary psychology and scientific research helps you learn to cultivate resilience and meaning while leading a more compassionate life. Through the use of meditation, lectures, readings, communication exercises, and class discussions, you will enhance the self-awareness, kindness, empathy, and courage to support your ability to respond mindfully to your own and others’ suffering.
Classes meet for 2 hours, once per week, for 8-weeks. The class takes a secular, non-denomination, educational approach.
