A Day of Compassion Cultivation Practice

New one-day workshop!

Saturday March 28, 2020 This event has been postponed 

10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Cultivating compassion can be challenging at times. Practicing in a spacious and supportive environment, with others, can be particularly helpful. This Day of Compassion Cultivation will include:  didactic information, simple yet powerful embodied compassion practices, guided meditations and exercises that you can weave into your daily life, time for written reflection,  partner exercises and sharing through group discussion.
Suitable for those new to compassion meditation, as well as those who have already taken the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) class series.
This one day workshop is taught by two CCT certified teachers: Diane Hetrick and Magda Szpala at the Center for Child and Family Well-being, in the University District in Seattle.

Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:30 pm This event has been postponed.

Compassion Cultivation Training is an eight-week course designed to develop the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for oneself and others. The course, developed by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers at Stanford University, combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research on compassion and is offered in a secular presentation.

Mind-Body Medicine is a five-week course that focuses on the interactions between mind and body and the ways in which emotional, mental, social, and spiritual factors can directly affect health.

Scholarship awards may not cover the entire cost of Reunion participation.

The WPHP Reunion is only able to accommodate participants and their spouses/significant others. Please call WPHP directly if you need support with the cost of child care to facilitate your attendance.


WPHP has three established donation funds designed to assist program participants:

1. Lynn R. Hankes, MD – Reunion Scholarship Fund

As is our tradition, last year’s generous donors stepped forward and underwrote scholarships for 24 participants/significant others who otherwise would not have been able to attend the reunion. WPHP expresses heartfelt gratitude for this strong show of generosity. As you register this year, we encourage you to perpetuate this tradition by donating an amount that is meaningful to you. Thank you in advance!
