Welcome to the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion Based Ethics

The Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics at Emory University supports a research-based approach to educating both heart and mind. With programs that support the flourishing and wellbeing of both individuals and societies, the center actively works to demonstrate the efficacy of these programs through innovative research.

Established on September 1, 2017, the official international launch of the center is scheduled for Fall 2018.
