The Centre for Contemplative Creative Science (CCCS) Contemplative Creative Science (CCS) is informed by the many forms of contemplative science and arts disciplines in traditional and modern Buddhism, and the latest research-based on contemplative science and contemplative arts, art therapy, Buddhist psychology. CCCS was created to offer secular and holistic workshops, courses, and programs for continuing education of mental health professionals, as well as mental training open to the public for mental health and well-being.
The founder of the Centre for Contemplative Creative Science, Emma JM. Ates, R.P., R.C.AT., D.T.A.T.I., C.P.P., B.F.A., studied and researched how to bring together Buddhist-Based contemporary application of Contemplative Science and Dharma art into global and mental health... an ongoing journey. However, she realized that using contemplative creative and bio-based methodologies with multi-modal mediums of observation and expression helped to clarify aspects of the embodied mind - cognitive, affective, spiritual, and behavioural - to regulate thoughts, emotions, and reinforce the existing strength, values, and cultivate awareness and gratitude for the planet and all beings. From research and this creative spark coming from personal contemplative practice and professional practice as a psychotherapist and an art therapist, she decided to develop courses and programs integrating the contemplative creative science.
CCCS was created to offer secular and holistic workshops, courses, and programs for continuing education of mental health professionals, as well as mental training open to the public for mental health and well-being.
The development of contemplative creative workshops and professional training programs are designed for health professionals, therapists, coaches, educators, caregivers, and anyone in a helping profession interested in integrating contemplative creative and bio-based approaches, practices, and interventions.
To guide and empower people to cultivate self-awareness and confidence, learn to regulate thoughts and emotions, and connect with their inner wisdom and compassion to become their authentic selves, live in harmony in their relationships with others, and cultivate gratitude for the all beings and the planet.
At CCCS, the embodied mind training uses the contemplative creative approach based on both traditional and modern Buddhist psychology, contemplative science, and contemplative psychotherapy, contemplative arts.
