CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.
This session is inspired by Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT), which combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and research. CCT is an eight week program designed to strengthen resilience, increase connection with others, and provide a general sense of well-being. Research demonstrates that CCT increases compassion for others, from others, and for self. It also increases mindfulness skills, self-efficacy, care for self and others, and the mind wandering toward pleasant topics. CCT has also been found to decrease worry and mind wandering onto unpleasant topics.
