About 10-Week Cognitively Based Compassion Training

Pre-registration required, email [email protected]
Cognitively Based Compassion Training (CBCT®) is a 10 week secular ethics training with roots in buddhism yet is not religious. Developed at Emory University by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, PhD with input from multiple disciplines & the Dalai Lama, and taught in medical & educational institutions­—anyone can learn this practice.
CBCT® has interfaced eastern meditation with neuroscience and psychology. It first couples self nurturance with focused attention meditations, and then adds progressive contemplative exercises that help one gain insight/awareness of how one’s attitudes and behaviors either support or hinder a compassionate response toward life’s ups and downs.
Research shows multiple biomarker and social benefits including increased personal resilience, improved satisfaction, plus a greater capacity for tenderness toward self and others.
