CCARe logo Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT)

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.

Diane&IwithJinpa-smThe Power of Mindful Resilience –
Cultivating Compassion for Life

based on the Compassion Cultivation Training program,
taught by two CCT certified teachers:
 Diane Hetrick and Magda Szpala

For those who have already taken the CCT training and want to explore more,
as well as for new participants.

In order to successfully navigate all the stresses and challenges of our lives, we need resilience. Resilience helps us bounce back from difficult situations and even grow stronger and wiser as a result. When combined with the qualities of mindfulness and compassion, you can experience a greater sense of stability and flexibility to live a life with more presence and fulfillment. These are all skills that can be learned and cultivated.   No prior meditation experience is required.
