About Compassion Institute (CI)

Founded in 2017, the mission of Compassion Institute (CI) is to advance compassion as a guiding principle and active force to create a more caring world. As a leader in compassion training and advocacy, we develop and deliver evidence-based programs for individuals, institutions, and communities that help promote personal and societal well-being.


We are committed to three strategic initiatives:

⦿ Bringing compassion-based interventions to key sectors of society

⦿ Disseminating the Institute’s flagship program CCT™ (Compassion Cultivation Training©) — an 8-week course developed at Stanford University

⦿ Promoting broader public awareness of the importance of compassion and its cultivation


CCT™ was first developed in 2009 at Stanford University by Dr. Thupten Jinpa with contributions from three well known experts in the integration of contemporary psychology and meditation. CCT™ blends traditional Tibetan Buddhist compassion cultivation exercises with insights from neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness, and group therapy protocols to produce a modern secular compassion training program with broad applicability and efficacy.


While CCT™ and certain derivative programs are offered to the public, additional programs rooted in CCT™ and specified derivatives address the particular needs of professionals that serve the public under challenging circumstances in the keystone professions of healthcare & public health, law enforcement & public safety, and education. As global experts in compassion-based interventions, CI offers secular compassion-focused programs and offerings based on the latest psychology, neurology, and contemplative science designed to impart the evidence-based power of compassion to transform the world at the levels of the individual and society.
