Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an eight-week program on compassion, empathy, and kindness. CCT integrates traditional contemplative practices based on Tibetan Buddhism with contemporary psychology and research on compassion. The program was developed at Stanford University by a team of contemplative scholars and clinical psychologists. Research suggests that participants do increase their compassion and their own sense of well-being.
