Renée Bochman

Certified CCT Instructor
Boston, MA
[email protected]

My name is Renée Bochman and found my way to meditation through Pema Chodron and I have always been motivated and working to find a better way to engage with the world and those around me. I teach CCT for free for anyone who is interested because the best thing I hear is from my students who believe learning about compassion has changed their lives as I know it has mine.


My own personal journey and practice is what I consider a Western secular Buddhist practice with a multi-lineage training. I started when I became a student at the Interdependence Project (IDP) and then completed the IDP’s Meditation Teacher Training in 2012. I became very interested in the impact of compassion both for self and others and took Stanford University’s Cultivating Compassion Training (CCT) course and then became a CCT Teacher. I have been fortunate to study under many teachers such as Pema Chodron, Sharon Salzberg, Robina Courtin, Thich Nhat Hanh and Llama Tsultrim and Kristen Neff.
