Capacity is limited according to the boat types.
Long-term partnerships with specific groups interested in discovering more about the compassion values and principles with meditation practices is possible.
And if you would like to go deeper into compassion education for a period of time, we provide in these settings the Emory University Cognitively-Based Compassion Trainings CBCT®
(Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) is a system of contemplative exercises designed to strengthen and sustain compassion. Practices include training in attentional stability and increased emotional awareness, as well as targeted analytical reflections to understand better one’s relationship with self and others. The reflective exercises seek critical insights into the way one’s mindsets and attitudes can be shifted to support personal resiliency, to foster an inclusive and more accurate understanding of others, and ultimately to intensify altruistic motivation. With practice, informed compassion can become a spontaneous response that permeates one’s life.
