50 Hour Compassion Based Meditation Teacher Training

Compassion-based meditation practices are foundational meditation practices that foster qualities of kindness, generosity, equanimity, and joy, toward ourselves and others. Compassion has been found to have numerous benefits for our physiological health, including influencing genetic expression, mental health, and emotion regulation, and in improving interpersonal and social relationships.

In a time where competition, comparison and isolation are prevalent, compassion and self-compassion practices offer us practical tools for encountering ourselves and others with kindness.

This immersive training is open to anyone genuinely interested in learning more about Mindful Self-Compassion and Compassion practices in a secular setting. Our foundational certificate draws from mindfulness-based self-compassion while touching on the rich theory, philosophy and history of compassion in the wisdom traditions. It will equip you with essential skills to integrate compassion-based meditation practices into your work.
