The core premise of Creating Compassionate Cultures (CCC) is that all human beings possess the ability to develop their innate wisdom, confidence, and compassion to benefit others. The aim of education is to help children, as well as people of all ages, to grow into capable and responsible human beings able to make a positive difference in the world.
Based on an integration of ancient wisdom, current scientific research, and practical experience, we propose that the healthy development of a child proceeds along three interconnected pathways: knowledge, strength, and compassion.
Using a Seven Steps method that nurtures social-emotional development, our goal is to provide training to communities and individuals around the world through preschool and K–12 education, workshops for teachers, parents, and professionals, certification for those who wish to start their own schools, and related educational products.
About the Online Institute
The online educational environment offers a variety of programs for personal enrichment or professional development, and enables anyone, anywhere, to develop his or her natural compassion and wisdom and contribute to peace in the world.
Our methodology follows systematic process called the Seven Steps, emphasizing Mindful Intention, Interconnection, Change, Perception, Empathy and Compassion. The journey follows a logical sequence of steps that engages one’s own wisdom and experience by employing logical reasoning, dialogue and reflection, beginning with the question, “What do I really want?” and concludes with an action-oriented inquiry of “How can we put our compassion into action?”
We explore time-tested practical tools and methodologies, while encouraging the innovation required to accommodate any learning environment or community. In this way, the Seven Steps and the whole CCC approach is suitable for everyone, and can be easily adapted for any age group, community, or context.
