There is still time to register for these CIT cohorts to benefit you individually, socially and professionally!

Marietta, Georgia, January 14, 2019 – Online Compassionate Integrity Training (CIT) kicks off with two cohorts this Tuesday and Wednesday, January 15 & 16, 2019. The courses are still open for registration for anyone by visiting CharterforCompassion.org/compassion-integrity-training today. They are brought to you by Life University’s Center for Compassion, Integrity and Secular Ethics (CCISE), as well as the Charter for Compassion.

CIT is a resiliency-informed, 10-week intensive course that cultivates human values as skills, so we can thrive as individuals and a society within a healthy environment. By learning skills to calm our bodies and minds, becoming more emotionally aware, learning to practice compassion for ourselves and others, as well as engaging with compassion in complex systems, we 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.

CIT has been used to train self-compassion, compassion for others and building compassionate systems for community leaders, peace builders, incarcerated individuals, at-risk youth, as well as those in homeless shelters and substance abuse facilities. Compassionate San Antonio and Compassionate Atlanta have been at the forefront of implementing CIT and having their leaders become Level 1 Facilitators. CIT is now spreading to Compassionate Cities throughout North America.

This online course will include both large and small group discussions, experiential learning activities, reflective writing activities, mindful dialogues and contemplative practices. This is an opportunity to be part of a global community of like-minded individuals who want to learn more about self-cultivation, relating to others and engaging in systems.

Those who receive a certificate in CIT are eligible to enroll in the CIT Level 1 Facilitator Training Program, which will be offered through the Charter for Compassion’s Education Institute in the spring.
