DEN Compassion Certification

Learn the science, practice, and history of compassion in a secular and ancient Buddhist context.

Taught and developed by Heather Prete, this is an intensive 30hr training that involves, lectures, practice reading, and discussions that covers all types of Compassion: Compassion for Self, Compassion for Others, and Universal Compassion.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Definitions of Love and Compassion and their respective practices
  • The healing practices of Self Compassion for our current and past Self
  • Transforming the mundane into the super mundane: Seeing love in all things
  • Healing the world in the arms of compassion

“Compassion is not a perfect translation when we speak on the “mind” of compassion in thee contexts. We are not speaking of an emotional state. We are referring to an aspect of the Self that is a warrior mind, unshakeable, and open. It is the foundation of our ability to transform suffering in this world and within ourselves.” 

– Heather Prete
