Compassion Cultivation Training© (CCT)
Reduce stress, increase well-being and improve relationships!
The CCT course, developed at Stanford University, integrates traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research on compassion. Through lectures, meditation techniques, mindfulness, and in-class interaction, you can strengthen the qualities of compassion, empathy and kindness.
A compassionate attitude can greatly reduce the distress people feel in difficult situations and become a profound personal resource in times of stress. Compassion Cultivation Training helps one move through life and its challenges with a steady mind, from a place of connection and inner strength.
While everyone will have their own unique experience, research has shown CCT increases happiness and overall positive emotions, reduces stress and anxiety, enhances feelings of connection, decreases worry, and leads to a more caring, compassionate attitude toward oneself and others.
