Part of the human experience is stress, struggle, and suffering. Compassion helps us with cultivating equanimity, feeling fulfilment, and experiencing happiness.
Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) was developed at Stanford University by Dr. Thupten Jingpa, a Tibetan Buddhist scholar and principal English translator to the Dalai Lama.
Each CCT class can include accessible meditation practices, personal investigation, space for sharing, scientific research, and homework to help integrate compassion habits into daily life.
This free information session offers an opportunity to meet with the instructor of this 8-week training, Tony Pham. The complimentary session will include a guided meditation, overview of the CCT program, and space to ask questions.
You’re invited to nurture your innate compassionate nature. Research has shown that completing CCT can result in lesser anxiety and greater acceptance of the vicissitudes of daily life. To learn more about the instructor and program, please register for the free info session.
