Compassion cultivation works for me, and many, many other people. Everytime I facilitate a CCT class, I learn more and deepen my practice of compassion. It’s an incredible, ever-renewing and endless resource for me – a source of strength, purpose and calm.
Here are a few of my favorite Science of Compassion resources for you to explore:

- Study on CCT and mind wandering published 2015, full paper.
- Videos of past conferences, presentations and events at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE).
- Peer reviewed CCARE articles.
- The Wellspring Institute’s library of key scientific papers on brain science, relationships, well-being, and more.
