Compassion Cultivation Training - CCT©

Lineth Jezek, Facilitator.

Compassion connects us with the object of our concern. Compassion includes respect, honoring the other’s person dignity as a fellow human being. Our concern, if it comes from genuine compassion, is based on the recognition that, just like I do, this other person wishes to be free from suffering.
— T. Jinpa

What is Compassion Cultivation Training?     

Compassion Cultivation Training - CCT©, is an eight-week course developed at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University School of Medicine. The program is designed to develop the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for oneself and for others.

Who Participates in Compassion Cultivation Training? 

CCT is designed to support anyone who wants to cultivate compassion for themselves and for others. This includes parents, caregivers, educators, healthcare professionals, therapists, executives, public servants, and people in a wide range of professions and life contexts.

Scientific studies suggest that a kind and compassionate attitude can greatly reduce the distress we feel in difficult situations and become a profound personal resource in times of stress. Through instruction and the interactive nature of the processes incorporated in this course, you will have opportunities to cultivate new ways in which to access, recognize, and strengthen compassion and empathy as a default response to the ever-present challenges that characterize our human experience.
