Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Daylong Intensive
with Jane Chun
Saturday, May 16th, 2020 | 10:00am – 5:00pm
Compassion is an inherent human quality – when we see someone in pain, we may feel their pain and feel motivated to help lessen their suffering. From a young age, we’re wired to connect and care for our fellow human beings. However, our capacity for compassion, for ourselves and others, may be stretched thin in environments where stress and burnout are pervasive, and the scale of social challenges feels overwhelming.

Compassion training offers a way to strengthen our innate and relational resources, broaden and shift our perspective, and metabolize the challenges of life, big and small. By connecting with our compassionate nature, we can cultivate habits and an outlook that is more empowering, and respond to challenges with greater skilfulness and wisdom.

This daylong intensive workshop condenses the essence of the 8-week Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) into a one-day format. It is an introduction to the 8-week Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) and a refresher for CCT alumni.

CCT was developed at the Stanford University Neurosciences Institute, and is now housed at the Compassion Institute.

Topics and skills covered include:
•Intention setting
•Empathy and empathic distress
•Self-compassion and self-appreciation
•Loving-kindness and compassion for others
