CBCT (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) is a contemplative course that uses meditation to gradually train the heart and mind in the qualities of compassion.

Over the 8 week program, students move through a sequence of steps that include discussions and guided meditations on mindful attention and awareness, self-compassion, equanimity, gratitude, love and empathy, and compassion.

CBCT has been shown in numerous scientific research studies to be helpful in improving well-being, health, and social relations in both adults and youth. CBCT is based on traditional Indo-Tibetan Buddhist teachings and was developed at Emory University by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, Ph.D., a former Buddhist monk. CBCT is completely non-secular, and no previous meditation experience os required.​
