One step forward for a more compassionate world

The Charter for Compassion International is launching the first course in the Compassion Education Institute on October 19. We hope you will join us in this engaging, online experience!

RamDassEmotional Intelligence for a Compassionate World – an online, anytime course

Facilitated by Barbara A. Kerr, Ph.D.

Q: What does Emotional Intelligence have to do with Compassion?

Emotional Intelligence skills and competencies can become the fertile ground for a more compassionate world. The skills that contribute to the various components of Emotional Intelligence may be viewed as pre-requisites to the development of compassion--in individuals, in families, in the workplace, in communities, and in the interconnected societies of people throughout the world.

During this “anywhere, anytime access” course, you will discover your own EI strengths and have an opportunity to learn ways to add to your Emotional Intelligence competencies. These skills are essential to building empathy and compassion, qualities that are much needed in our current world climate. Together, we can make a difference and bring about a more compassionate world.

Q: What is the time commitment for this course?

Emotional Intelligence for a Compassionate World will be open for learning on October 19, but you can sign-up at any time and begin the course at any point after that date—what we call “open access.” We understand that you have many tasks and responsibilities, so the course has been designed for your convenience. You may start and stop as your own schedule dictates. You can go through all seven lessons in a marathon of learning session (we don’t advise this), or you can sign-in to the course for ten minutes at a time for as long as it takes to complete the course!

Q: How can I learn more about the course?

Read more about this course and about other courses to be added soon on the Charter website. Share your ideas and perspective with others around the world who care about cultivating compassion for all people, all creatures, and our Earth. We hope to “see” you online!

Q: Where do I sign up? And what is the fee?

Enroll now:

The fee for the seven-lesson course is $149. A limited number of scholarships are available for those who cannot pay this amount but want to learn about how Emotional Intelligence skills can help bring about a more compassionate world.
