Feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Wishing the world was a kinder place these days? The science of compassion reveals tools to address these life experiences to achieve more happiness, calm, acceptance of emotions, and self-caring behaviour. “I find that I am more calm, patient, and present in daily life. I used to often feel overwhelmed and flustered with the amount of to-dos I had on my list everyday, but I have become better at making space for self-care and I feel more satisfaction in my accomplishments.” --CCT Participant, Fall 2020 CCT was developed at Stanford University by leading experts in neuroscience, psychology, contemplative practice, and adult education to move through life and its challenges with a steady mind, from a place of connection and inner strength.
