The Institute for Compassionate Leadership (ICL) was formed in 2012 by Lodro Rinzler, an author & meditation teacher based in New York City.

ICL serves to empower socially conscious, self-aware, and compassionate leaders by educating aspiring change-makers in meditation, community organizing, and 21st century leadership skills built for today's workplace environment.

ICL makes practices accessible to all, so that more compassionate leaders will rise up to meet worldwide challenges and strive to shape a better and brighter future for our planet. We recently loaded our full curriculum online, so that you can cultivate the skills of compassionate leadership alongside a full-time job and/or busy school schedule. Through working on the ICL teachings (below), along with the help of executive coaches, we offer the tools needed to become a more compassionate, self-aware leader.
