With Jinpa and other CCT Teachers in Portland, Oregon
Cultivating compassion goes beyond feeling more empathy and concern for others.
It develops the strength to be with suffering, the courage to take compassionate action in a hurting world, and the resilience to prevent compassion fatigue. These qualities support a wide range of goals, from making a positive social change to improving personal relationships.
