IMAGINE IF WE COULD TAP INTO THE PART OF THE BRAIN THAT MAKES US ALTRUISTIC AND COMPASSIONATE

The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) is striving to create a community of scholars and researchers, including neuroscientists, psychologists, educators and philosophical and contemplative thinkers around the study of compassion. Drawing from such varied disciplines – from etiological approaches that examine the evolutionary roots of compassion to skills training programs for strengthening compassion to neuroscientific studies of the brain mechanisms that support compassion as well as the ‘warm glow’ feelings that reinforce helping others, CCARE is working to gain a deep understanding of compassion and its associated human behaviors in all its richness. .

CCARE is also engaged with experts from contemplative traditions that contain a rich mental taxonomy and, more importantly, clearly delineated mental techniques aimed at cultivating and enhancing specific qualities of the human mind and heart, i.e. compassion.

This initiative envisioned at CCARE will:

  1. Use rigorous scientific methods to define the neural basis for compassion and altruistic behavior.
  2. Serve as a key hub for the scientific examination of compassion and altruistic behavior both nationally and internationally.
  3. Create tools to enable people to promote and enhance their own experiences of compassion and corresponding altruistic behavior.
  4. Encourage and support collaborative research on compassion among a variety of disciplines.
  5. Disseminate research findings on an international scale using a number of media forums.
