Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT)

A human being is a part of the whole called by us "universe", a part llimited in time and spece. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousnes. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatuers and the whole of nature in its beauty.

~Albert Einstein

CCT for Therapists & Counselors

July 13 - Aug 31, 2021

Tuesdays, 4 - 6 pm

As mental health professionals, maintaining a healing, compassionate space especially during crisis requires reserves of energy and resilience that can be difficult to replenish. This class draws on spiritual, contemplative, and neuroscientific perspectives to care for the caretaker in a way that increases emotional and psychological reserves. Join other therapists as you recover from burnout and delve into a journey to uncover and expand your own natural capacity for compassion.

16 CEUs available for an additional $80.

A Note About Cost

Because these classes are not therapy, it is not possible to use insurance to cover the cost. In order to make this 8-week course accessible to people from all walks of life, we offer these classes at a choose-your-price model:

  • $200 is our reduced rate ($25 per class) 
  • $320 is our full rate ($40 per class) -- this is the cost to TLC of providing the group and covering all costs
  • $440 is our "Love and Equity" rate ($55 per class), which supports our ability to offer these classes at the reduced rate
     

You are encouraged to select a rate with your own financial comfort in mind. We will value you for your attendance and interest in this training, not for which of the amounts you pay.

Many thanks to our dear colleagues at Resonant Relationships for introducing us to this idea and for modeling it so well in their provision of group therapy!

*Payment is due before the start of the first class unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
