We are delighted to be offering an 8-Week CCT Program in London from March 16th - May 4th 2016.

The course will be held for 2 hours each Wednesday, 6-8pm at Canvas Cafe, 42 Hanbury St, London E1 5JL for 8 weeks.

About the Programme

Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an 8-week educational programme designed to help you improve your resilience and feel more connected to others—ultimately providing an overall sense of well-being. CCT was developed by a team of contemplative scholars, researchers, and psychologists at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University.

What does CCT involve?

CCT combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research to help you lead a more compassionate life. Through instruction, daily meditation, mindfulness, and in-class interaction, you can strengthen the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness. The practices taught in CCT promote wise, compassionate action across a range of situations, and support resilience to distress and burnout. These skills can lead to better engagement and communication in relationships, increased ability to handle stressful situations, higher job satisfaction, and greater psychological wellbeing. 

Who is it for?

This programme is open to anyone who wishes to cultivate compassion for themselves and others. No previous meditation experience is required, however participation in regular meditation practice is a fundamental aspect of the programme. 

About the Instructor: This course will be led by Dr Amy Finlay-Jones. To find out more about Amy, please click here.
