About The Compassionate Integrity Training (CIT) Program
The program is organised by the Mindful African Initiative, in collaboration with Life University and The Global Youth Alliance for Kindness. They will be sponsoring a limited number of passionate and committed educators in Africa to participate in the CIT program. This is with the aim to cultivate essential skills that will help African Educators develop greater resiliency, and adequately adapt to the ever-transforming education system.
First, CIT is a multi-part training program that cultivates basic human values as skills for the purpose of increasing individual, social and environmental flourishing. The program 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.
More so, compassionate Integrity is achieved as a result of building up knowledge, understanding, and a set of concrete skills. And this is what guards against actions that compromise the well-being of oneself and others, therefore cultivating it in one’s life and in one’s community directly impacts individual and collective flourishing.
Generally, CIT comprises three series, and each of the series has a set of skills covered. They include;
- Self-Cultivation (Calming Body and Mind, Ethical Mindfulness, Emotional Awareness, and Self-compassion)
- Relating to Others (Impartiality and Common Humanity, Forgiveness, and Gratitude, Empathic Concern, Compassion)
- Engaging in Systems (Appreciating Interdependence, Engaging with Discernment)
Similarly, the skills build on from the previous skill with each series. Starting with exploring the self, moving to focus on others, and finally transitioning to wider networks and systems that humans are part of and engage with.
What To Expect
For the duration, the CIT course comprises 10 skills to be completed through online/offline facilitated sessions, reflective writing, and contemplative journaling.
