If you are curious and would like to enjoy a taste of CCT without committing to the full 8-week course, join Laura for a free 90-minute Introduction to Compassion Cultivation Training© class. Participants will have an opportunity to meet Laura, engage in a sample meditation and exercise from CCT, and ask questions. The class is not required to register for CCT nor is there an obligation/expectation for participants to register after attending this introduction. It's open to anyone who's interested in simply learning more. Registration links for upcoming introduction classes are below.

Compassion Cultivation Training© (CCT) was developed by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. The cost for the course is $395 ($325 early-bird registration by August 30) and includes 16-hours in-class time plus online access to guided meditations and other materials. While the fee for CCT helps cover the expense of offering it, no person committed to attending and being engaged will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please contact Laura Banks if you would like to participate but you aren’t able to afford the full class fee.
