There is still time to apply for the 2014 Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Teacher Certification Program! The application deadline has been extended through Friday, July 12, 2013. Details and application information for the program are now available on the program website. All applicants will be notified by September 3, 2013. The program curriculum will start in January 2014 and run through June 2014.

CCARE’s Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Teacher Certification Program is a part-time training and certification program for professionals who want to teach CCARE’s Compassion Cultivation Training course. Trainees who fulfill all of the program requirements, including a period of supervised teaching, may apply for certification to teach CCT courses in their respective communities.

The CCT course is an 8-week educational program that combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research to help participants to learn how to lead a more compassionate life. The CCT Teacher Certification Program is an opportunity for committed individuals to deepen in their own practice of compassion at the service of facilitating this process in others.
