Compassionate Integrity Training

This is a resiliency-informed, intensive course that trains people how to cultivate greater self-compassion and compassion for others, and to create more compassionate systems. It is based on cutting-edge developments in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, trauma-informed care, peace and conflict studies, and contemplative science, and builds off of work done by Daniel Goleman (author of the book Emotional Intelligence) and Peter Senge, initiatives in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), and other areas. 

Compassionate Integrity Training is a ten-week online course hosted through Zoom with a wealth of additional materials online. The course includes large and small group discussions, experiential learning activities, reflective writing, mindful dialogues, and contemplative practices.
