FACES of Pain Care – Episode 4 – Cultivating Compassion with Amy Colvin

Listen to this episode

Amy ColvinAmy Pattee Colvin first discovered compassion meditation in the mid- 1990s via a form of meditation called Sum Faht, a blend of Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. Looking for ways to share this type of meditation in a format that blended with her presentation style, Amy became a certified facilitator of Stanford University’s Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) program developed at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education.

By combining her years of Sum Faht practice with elements of the CCT program, she developed a transformative curriculum called Cultivating Compassionate Balance. Her mission is to help people discover and cultivate acceptance and compassion for self and others, so that in turn, they can thrive in their chosen fields. Through the media of her courses, self-compassion coaching, and her new book, Cultivating Compassion: Simple Everyday Practices for Discovering Peace of Mind and Resilience, Amy offers practical tools and techniques for anyone interested in positive personal growth.
