The Compassion Initiative

An emerging unit aimed at making compassion more easily

understood, researched, and valued in today’s world

We hope to make compassion more part of every day life

and we aim to examine compassion in terms of:


Training individuals in compassion-based programs


Conducting research exploring the impact of compassion, and what facilitates and blocks compassionate action


Disseminating and teaching compassion knowledge and information

Imagine a more compassionate world, one where we are kind to one another no matter what our differences might be, where we reach out to those in need and help to relieve their suffering, and where we can even treat ourselves with that same love and compassion. That is our vision, our intention.
