Karuna Training is an inclusive training. When we meet in-person, we honor the land and the people from whom it was taken and we honor the differences we each bring into community. 

We seek kind and skillful ways to address our unconscious biases and work toward a more compassionate exchange with not-knowing those whom we perceive as different.
