Developing Creative, Compassionate Communities

Welcome to our online course offerings! 

These courses are designed for and open to anyone interested learning how to develop and bring forth more sustainable care in our organizations, schools, communities and our world!

We believe in empowering those we serve to co-imagine and co-create more sustainable, caring and just communities by offering compassion-based tools for both personal and social transformation.

To that end, we have created five training modules or clusters to help individuals and groups:

1) ENVISION more caring communities;

2) LOVE in more sustainable and compassionate ways; 

3) SEE the systems and structures that inhibit our capacity to connect in just, equitable ways;

4) HEAL from collective forms of trauma and oppression and the loss of community; and

5) TRANSFORM systems and strategize capacity building necessary to realize and sustain our shared visions.

Learn more about each of these modules and their related courses by clicking on the portals below.

Curious about where you should start? If you are new to Courage, consider starting at "Envision." Have a personal practice, or looking to start one? Consider starting with "Love." Already familiar with our compassion training? Consider starting with "See."

We also offer a number of these workshops as public retreats and can develop tailored programs for groups and organizations. Learn more about our consulting programs.

Cornel West said, "Love is what justice looks like in public." It is time for us to take a close look at the world we live in and to understand the systems and structures that inhibit our capacity for care and compassion. Developing this common analysis--within an ethic of love and care--is critical to our collective work.
