Course Description

Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an educational program designed to help you improve your resilience and feel more connected to others – ultimately providing an overall sense of well-being.

CCT combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research to help you lead a more compassionate life. Through instruction, daily meditation, mindfulness, and in-class interaction, you can strengthen the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness. Classes meet once a week for two hours for eight weeks.

Learn how to train your mind to intentionally choose compassionate thoughts and actions and develop skills that help you relate to others – and yourself. For more details about CCT, click here.
