Full Description

Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT)™ is an 8-week educational program developed by Stanford’s School of Medicine’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education 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.
Along with weekly meetings and at-home practice, there will be an online compliment to this course where students can gain access to guided meditations and other resources relevant to the course and their progress in cultivating compassion. These online resources will continue to be available to students following course completion. In order to gain access to the online resources, students will be assigned a login name and password, so we will need to release your email address to Adam Burn prior to the first meeting to ensure you have access to course content. If this is of concern, please let us know.

Learn how to train your mind to intentionally choose compassionate thoughts and actions and develop skills that help you relate to others—and yourself. See more at
