We all face difficult situations, challenging relationships, and internal thoughts and beliefs that prevent us from experiencing the best life has to offer. When we become more aware, open, and curious about the world and people around us, we learn to use our natural compassion in practical ways to navigate life’s toughest personal challenges and begin to move through life’s ups and downs with greater confidence and ease. 


Practicing compassion can alleviate our worries and fears so we can become powerful forces for good — in our relationships, families, workplaces, and communities. Be a part of making the world a better place.


Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT©) is an 8 week program, developed at Stanford University, with insights and techniques from psychology, neuroscience and contemplative practice.  This course integrates evidence-based meditation techniques, interactive discussions, and lectures as well as real world exercises to put learning into practice.
