CCT is a multi-week personal and professional development course designed at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education and taught around the world by Certified Facilitators. The program includes practical tools and exercises designed to enhance your awareness, compassion, and resilience.

CCT will support you to improve your relationships with friends, family, clients, patients, staff, and coworkers.

You’ll walk away from each CCT class with tools and practices you can immediately put to work. CCT will help you:

  • Improve awareness
  • Increase connection to others
  • Decrease the distress you may feel in difficult situations

CCT is a two-hour weekly class that includes:

  • Large and small group discussions to share learning experiences
  • Guided meditation to improve awareness
  • Listening and communication exercises to build compassionate interactions

You’ll also have daily homework of one guided meditation per day and informal practices to try as you go about your day.


Tsering Tsomo

I have been a Vipassana, placement and analytical meditation practitioner for over 10 years. I was certified to teach CCT in 2019 and currently teach CCT in class and online to both university students and older adults in the Greater Toronto Area. I have a certificate from University of Toronto in the Foundations of Applied Mindfulness Meditation and a Level 2 for the 16 Guidelines, from the Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom. Currently I am completing the UofT Certificate of Mindfulness Informed End of Life Care. I hope to be able to offer CCT in the diaspora Tibetan community and the not for profit and charitable sector, to enhance resiliency, and greater connection among community members.

Dan D'Agostino

I’ve been teaching CCT since my certification in 2019. I’ve taught a wide variety of people of every age, in every walk of life, and from all across North America. Having worked as an academic librarian at the University of Toronto for 33 years, I feel particularly drawn to teaching young people, believing that the ability to cultivate compassion will be invaluable in helping them face the challenges of the future. I first began meditating over 20 years ago and have taught a broad range of practices in a number of different settings.
