Pam Cayton

Since 1989, Pam Cayton and the staff at Creating Compassionate Cultures Tara Redwood School have researched, created and implemented strategies for awakening compassion, wisdom and social responsibility in the minds and hearts of children.

The Seven Steps to Knowledge, Strength and Compassion is a unique, secular educational methodology developed at Tara Redwood School in Santa Cruz, California. It blends the best of Eastern and Western approaches for educating the hearts and minds of children.

The Seven Steps program was inspired by the late Tibetan master Lama Thubten Yeshe and his vision for “a new kind of universal education” – now known as Universal Education for Compassion and Wisdom. It has been developed over a period of 18 years and is suitable for children of any faith or culture.
