Compassion Cultivation Training
The Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an 8-week class that was developed at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) and the Compassion Institute (CI) by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists and researchers. This evidence-based curriculum involves training the mind and heart through meditation practices that tap into our innate capacity for kindness, empathy, love and compassion.
The program helps to develop skills in relating to ourselves and others with compassion. It strengthens our ability to choose thoughts, attitudes and perspectives that lead to positive changes in the way we respond to our own suffering and that of others. A growing body of research supports the evidence that compassion training has a wide range of benefits such as decreasing symptoms of stress and anxiety, while also increasing compassion for oneself and for others.
This 8-Week Training Includes:
- 2 hours per week of meditation instruction & practice, lectures, skill-building exercises and group discussions
- Access to audio tracks to facilitate home-based practice
- Suggestions for "on the go" compassion in action exercises to help integrate class material in daily life
Who Can Benefit from CCT:
- Mental health and healthcare professionals
- Anyone interested in developing more compassion for themselves and others
- Meditation practitioners who want to refresh, expand or deepen their practice
