experiential nature of the act program
An integral component of this training are the experiential processes and practices of Applied Compassion. ACT is a highly-engaged community that comes together regularly in-person online over the course of the 11-month program.
Your live participation online is required at all three immersive retreats (January, July and November) online as well as at your mentoring group that meets once a month (you will be able to choose your monthly mentoring group day/time).
We recognize that for some participants, depending on timezone, attending three retreats in-person online may be challenging. Yet, due to the highly experiential and relational nature of this program, it's important for you as well as the cohesion of the group, that you participate live.
Please confirm that this is achievable for you. If you're unable to fulfill these requirements, please consider postponing your registration to a future ACT program.
ACT Capstone Projects
An essential part of this program is an Applied Compassion Capstone Project that each participant will create, deliver, and report back on during the course of the Applied Compassion Training.
Participants will begin designing these projects right from the start of the training and will be required to deliver them by Summer 2022, reporting back to the faculty by October 2022.
Fully completed Capstone Projects are a requirement in order to receive the certificate of completion from CCARE and ACA at the culmination of the program (November 2022).
Please consider if this is achievable for you, and if you're unable to fulfill these requirements, please postpone your registration to a future ACT program.
