Chanda Dharap

While in my day job, I work in the Tech industry; I am also an active practitioner of meditation, self-inquiry and the Healing arts. Both fields, one being focused on the mental, emotional and the other on the spiritual, have exposed me to tremendous insights about our mind and our deeper self. One with its continuous mechanism of action and reaction, and the other, our deeper self, with its immense capacity to nurture and stay centered in the heart and seems to be magically connected with every one and every thing around us.

Additionally I am a Compassion Cultivation Teacher, certified at the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT)© Teacher Certification Program by the Compassion Institute. The program was jointly created by Stanford’s CCARE and the Compassion Institute.
