Compassionate Integrity Training through Project Njaan
Have you ever seen someone deal with ANY situation that comes their way calmly, with care and consideration? Have you ever looked at them and wondered how they accomplished that? What about an individual who has a sense of gratitude for all things around them? Did you ever wonder if you could learn how to do those things as well? When we learn how 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. How can we learn those skills? Compassionate Integrity Training (CIT) is a great place to start.
CIT is a resiliency-informed program that cultivates human values as skills, so we can thrive as individuals, and society, within a healthy environment. By learning skills to calm our bodies and mind, becoming more emotionally aware, learning to practice compassion for ourselves and others, as well as engaging with compassion in complex systems, we can build toward compassionate integrity: the ability to live one’s life in accordance with one’s values with a recognition of common humanity, our basic orientation to kindness and reciprocity.
This course will include both large and small group discussions, experiential learning activities, reflective writing activities, mindful dialogues, and contemplative practices.
