There are many strong parallels between these practices and theories and research findings in social and developmental psychology. I am also inspired by the ways in which Innate Compassion Training (ICT) draws on and informs dialogue between spiritual traditions, and how ICT allows flexibility to draw on inspiring social activists to inform efforts to solve problems in the world. In addition, the FAC sangha is an empowering source of compassion and wisdom.
The theory and practice of ICT informs my scholarly research and writing on meditation and compassion. I occasionally lead meditation workshops for the general public and for those who are interested in learning how meditation can enhance their work in health care, mental health, or education.
