Details: CIT is a multi-part training program that cultivates basic human values as skills for the purpose of increasing individual, social and environmental flourishing. The program focuses on and builds towards “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. Compassionate Integrity is achieved as a result of building up knowledge, understanding, and a set of concrete skills, and is what guards against actions that compromise the well-being of oneself and others, therefore cultivating it in one’s life and in one’s community directly impacts individual and collective flourishing.

  • Engaging in Systems (Appreciating Interdependence, Engaging with Discernment).

Duration:

The CIT course comprises 10 skills that are completed through online/offline facilitated sessions, reflective writing, and contemplative journaling. It will take one 2-hour session to facilitate 1 skill. This training course will spread over 10 weeks (1 skill will be facilitated every week). The training will start on September 28, 2020, and the sessions will be held every Monday for all the sessions. Note that there are no assignments and or tests in CIT.

Benefits:
