4-Week Compassion Intensive Training

May 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - May 31, 2023 @ 1:00 pm UTC+0


As humans, we are wired not only to be able to do hard things, but to do them with love. When we do, we tap into a profound and renewing source of strength, courage, and connection. Wisdom traditions, the arts, and even science call this capacity to be both aware of suffering and willing to relieve that suffering compassion. It is how we have survived and thrived as individuals, communities, and as a species.

Recent discoveries in neuroscience show that compassion is both an innate capacity rooted in our care system and a skill which can be deliberately trained and strengthened. As we cultivate compassion, we become better able to respond to the challenges of life with wisdom, respect, and kindness. We build individual and collective resilience, growing in ways that make us stronger and more connected rather than hurt and broken apart.

This four-week Compassion Intensive is designed to introduce participants to the practice of compassion through evidence-based research, interactive exercises, personal reflection, and group discussions. It condenses key components of Compassion Cultivation Training© (CCT™), an 8-week training developed at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE), and now housed at the Compassion Institute. Participants will be introduced to the science of compassion, gain insight into their own experiences, and explore practices which support the unfolding of compassion in their personal and professional lives.

This class series is designed as an intensive, experiential introduction to compassion training for anyone who wants to explore the benefits of compassion. This includes leaders, caregivers, educators, healthcare professionals, therapists, entrepreneurs, public servants, parents, and people in a wide range of professions and life contexts. It is also serves as a refresher course and opportunity to practice for those already familiar with one or more of the many evidence-based compassion trainings available.
