Would you like to learn skills that can help you deal with a stressful situation in a calm and compassionate way?

Are you seeking a way to recognize common humanity instead of differences? 


CIT is a resiliency-based program that cultivates human values as skills so we can thrive as individuals and a society, within a healthy environment. When we learn how to calm our bodies and minds, deal effectively with our emotions, and relate to others with dignity and compassion, we have the ability to create a better world.  

The program includes both large and small group discussions, experiential learning activities, reflective writing activities, mindful dialogues, and contemplative practices.

  • Build and expand your resilient zone

  • Improve your physical and emotional health

  • Create space between your thoughts and speech/actions to become less reactive

  • Recognize bias, in/out-group traps, and how to focus on common humanity
