Featured Courses


    The range of courses offered in the Featured Courses section of the Charter Education Institute stem from assisting individuals, teams and organizations around the world on understanding the mind and heart of a compassionate community and explore processes that create paths to design sustainable action plans to meet local, national and international challenges.  In addition, just as many of us engage in different circles of culture and society, so does the Charter for Compassion.  The Charter supports work in twelve sectors: art, business, education, environment, healthcare, interfaith (religion and spirituality), peace, science and research, social justice, social services, restorative justice, and women and girls.  Consequently, course work is being desired and implemented in each of these sectors.

    In the midst of the coronavirus this pandemic, our humanity is being called to take a pause and take a fresh look at everything, all over again, as if nudging us to start over. This is not an easy journey, nor is it time-bound or certain in any way. We are being deluded with the idea of returning to normalcy while presented with heaps of confusing information which we now need to collectively process. It can be overwhelming to maintain our status quo in the midst of all this and even a more daunting task for us to start making fundamental changes to our lives.

    Many of us are faced with the questions - what now? Will we ever get back to normal? What will the new normal be? It is with the intention to provide all of us with a safe space to embrace this unknowing, that we have conceptualised this course.

    The Gift of Forgiveness

    Start Date: November 16, 2020
    Duration: 4 weeks.
    Zoom Date: Friday, November 27, 2020 at 9AM PST (Zoom link provided during course)

    Cost: $30 US

    Registration Opens: October, 2020

    With “The Gift of Forgiveness”, we are welcoming back Deborah Briggs, instructor and author of one of the Charter’s most successful courses, Growing Whole, Not Old - Aging in the Pandemic Age (Formerly "Awakening the Sage Within"). In that course she introduced hundreds to the concept of Sage-ing®.

    During this workshop, we will delve into ‘forgiveness’: one of the core concepts of the Sage-ing® Movement. We will develop greater compassion for ourselves as we begin to free ourselves from the painful burdens we have carried.  This course provides us with the opportunity to live more fully once we learn that things we saw as negative can be transformed into the foundation for living more fully.

    By exploring the concept of forgiveness, we can uncover pearls of wisdom and experience the healing power of reframing experiences. As we begin to repair painful relationships, we can develop a deeper and more universal self-love. This is pivotal to the work of wise aging and to developing compassion.

    En estos tiempos de pandemia por el COVID-19 se ha vuelto cada vez más evidente la necesidad de desarrollar ciertas habilidades que nos permitan vivir más en paz con nosotros mismos y con el mundo que nos rodea.

    La compasión es un camino excelente para lograr esto, y a través del Entrenamiento en Compasión Integral (CIT por sus siglas en inglés) vas a aprender cómo calmar tu cuerpo y mente, autocultivar la conciencia, ser más bondadoso con los demás y además saber cómo crear un proyecto compasivo para tu comunidad o una comunidad necesitada desde la visión de la compasión, con sabiduría y respeto.

    CIT es un programa basado en la resiliencia que cultiva los valores humanos como habilidades para que podamos florecer como individuos, y como sociedad en un ambiente saludable. A través de aprender habilidades para calmar el cuerpo y la mente, y obtener una mayor conciencia emocional; de aprender a practicar la compasión hacia nosotros mismos y hacia los demás; y el compromiso con sistemas cada vez más complejos, podemos construir hacia una compasión integral, que es: la habilidad de vivir nuestra vida de acuerdo a valores que reconocen nuestra humanidad en común y nuestra tendencia natural hacia la bondad y la reciprocidad.
