Course Description

CBCT® (Cognitively Based Compassion Training) is an 8-week personal education course designed to cultivate greater well-being through the use of reflective, contemplative practices. Developed by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, Ph.D at Emory University in 2004, CBCT® is based on centuries-old techniques from the Indo-Tibetan tradition. Negi drew from the lojong tradition, a set of meditative practices designed to bring about 'thought transformation', to create this contemporary and secular method. CBCT® is independent from, and in many ways, supportive of, any faith or belief system.

Analytical mental exercises are used to progressively foster compassion toward increasingly wider circles, beyond those whom we feel immediately closest to. The practices support the growth of a number of mental states and behaviors valued across cultures, such as kindness, gratitude, generosity, and warm-heartedness.

The fundamental premise is that compassion is a trait that can be developed and expanded. This view is supported by contemporary science as well as by most spiritual traditions.
