At its most fundamental level, compassion is the wish to alleviate the suffering of another. Compassion is a basic human value, necessary for our survival as individuals and as communities. It is recognized by all major spiritual traditions, and is indeed elevated as a highest ideal by them. Modern science is also increasingly recognizing the importance of compassion for our health and the flourishing of our species.
Compassion Training, or CBCT, is a secular technique derived from Tibetan Buddhist practices for enhancing one's sense of caring for self and others. Preliminary data suggests that CBCT actually changes people's daily behavior in ways likely to enhance emotional well-being, relationships, and improve physical health.
