Compassion Cultivation Training is an 8-week training course developed at Stanford University Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) by principal author and Compassion Institute Co-Founder Thupten Jinpa Ph.D with contributions from CI’s Founding Faculty.

The evidence is compelling. While compassion is an inherent quality we all possess as human beings, research from neuroscience, contemplative science, and psychology show that it is an orientation and skill that can be cultivated and strengthened to increase the well-being of individuals, communities and society. 

What does Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) look like?

CCT is an 8-week course, including:

  • Weekly 2-hour class, with lectures, discussions, and interactive exercises
  • Meditation practices that progress from week to week
  • Real-world assignments for practicing compassionate thoughts and actions

What effects can I expect?

While everyone will have their own unique experience, research has shown CCT can lead to:

  • Support for your health, happiness, and well-­­being
  • Reduction of stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Improvements in relating to others and the world
