About Us

Compassion Institute is a global leader in compassion education and advocacy. As a growing U.S.-registered public charity, we work hard to fulfill our mission to bring non-secular compassion-based training programs to the public and selected “keystone” professions critical to societal stability and health, including healthcare, law enforcement, education, and social services.

Our signature program Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT™)© was first developed at Stanford in 2008 by Thupten Jinpa, Ph.D., the principal translator to His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the past 35 years, and further refined by CI’s Founding Faculty, highly respected leaders in compassion education, contemplative practice, psychology, and compassion science. The program has been the subject of numerous research studies over the last decade, demonstrating its value in meeting many of the challenges of modern life.

CI has a community of more than 200 professionally-certified CCT™ instructors from across North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, who have undertaken specialized training.
