Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an eight-week course designed to enhance the qualities of strength, courage, and resilience. We meet once a week for 2 hours to learn how to integrate meditation into our urban, busy lives. Through in-class interaction, we pause and reassess the business -and meaning- of our lives. Scientific research and contemporary psychology on compassion reconnect us to our innate compassion and inform a more mindful state of mind. We engage in group exercises and discussions to seek ways to let our empathy arise without feeling overwhelmed. The program was developed at Stanford University Medical School’s CCARE by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers.
Research indicates that CCT increases compassion for others, from others, and for self. It also:
Increases Mindfulness skills, self-efficacy, care for self and others, and mind wandering toward pleasant topics.
Decreases worry and mind wandering onto unpleasant topics.
