The Center for
Compassionate Mindful Education
Cultivating a vigorous, caring and pluralistic society in Israel
At CCME we specialize in developing mindfulness & compassion based
Social-Emotional Learning programs for the education system and society at large.
We believe that the path towards a caring society, begins with cultivating the potential of the change agents and model figures for the next generation:
parents, educators and therapists.
Our programs are based on empirical studies and are focused on improving the well-being, awareness and social-emotional skills of educators, caregivers
and the children whom they raise.
CCME is a non-profit institution dedicated to making mindful compassionate education accessible to all populations in Israel.
Since 2014 we've trained over 500 educators and thousands of students in the Israeli education system.
Mindfulness and compassion practice cultivates:
Awareness of oneself & others
Emotional and behavioral regulation
Concentration, co-ordination and motor skills
Care for oneself & others
Reduced stress and anxiety
Increased levels of well-being
Needless to say these skills are essential and highly effective for leading a humanistic values-based life, even in times of radical social and global change as we are experiencing in the 21st century.
"My staff and students are more aware of themselves and their surroundings. You can see it in their approach to friends at recess, in the classroom climate and in the presence of the teachers, who arrive each morning lighthearted."
