Wise, skillful, practical compassion for the good of the world.

The Center for Engaged Compassion offers unique processes of “engaged compassion” that transform the desire to help others into practical actions that change the world for good. The Center teaches concrete, learnable practices, skills, and perspectives that give individuals, groups, communities, organizations, religious congregations, and governments the capabilities and sensibilities for creating genuine peace, healing, reconciliation, and collaboration through the formation of engaged compassion.

The CEC has helped cultivate compassion in a wide variety of settings — including those of prison populations, terrorized communities in Zimbabwe, congressional staff on Capitol Hill, children in schools, and chaplains in hospitals.
