Register for the Compassionate Inquiry Self-Study Short Online Course

We are excited to invite you to participate in the Compassionate Inquiry Self-Study Short Online Course. This course was designed so that Compassionate Inquiry can be more accessible to health professionals who are unable to commit to the intensive Compassionate Inquiry Professional Training. It is also for lay-people who have a strong interest in Gabor’s work.

Using Compassionate Inquiry, you will be able to unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real messages that words both express and conceal.

Learn from Gabor…
