Co-sponsored with Compassionate Houston.
Have you ever seen someone deal with any situation that comes their way calmly, with care and consideration? What about someone who has a sense of gratitude for all things around them? Have you wondered how you could be more like them? When we learn to calm our bodies and minds, deal effectively with our emotions, and treat others with kindness, dignity, and compassion, we have the ability to create a better world.
Compassionate Integrity Training (CIT) is a resiliency-informed program that cultivates values as skills so we can thrive as individuals and as a society. Compassionate integrity is the ability to live one’s life not only in accordance with one’s values but also with a recognition of common humanity and an orientation toward kindness and reciprocity. We will utilize large- and small-group discussion, experiential learning activities, reflective writing, mindful dialogue, and contemplative practices.
