For this Talking Montessori, Education Evolution webinar, we are delighted to be joined by Dr. Michael Karlin and Shane O’Connor from the Center for Compassion, Integrity and Secular Ethics at Life University. During our discussion, Dr. Michael Karlin and Shane O’Connor will share their knowledge and expertise in Compassionate Integrity Training (CIT).
CIT is a multi-part training program that cultivates basic human values as skills for the purpose of increasing individual, social and environmental flourishing. CIT focuses on and builds towards compassionate integrity; the ability to live one’s life in accordance with one’s values with a recognition of common humanity, our basic orientation to kindness, and reciprocity.
This webinar will explore the potential of fostering compassion and kindness for both adults and the children we work with.
Join us on Tuesday 8th June at 6:00pm BST
