Are you looking for a supportive space for learning in a community of meditation practitioners? This introductory Karuna Training mini-retreat is open to everyone. The program will include guided meditation, teachings, Q&A, and small group experiential work. If you are considering the Karuna certificate program in Contemplative Psychology, this introduction will give you a feel for and information on the program.
The word Karuna means compassion in Sanskrit and Karuna Training brings together a community of people who trust the wisdom of the world to awaken our compassionate hearts. As we deepen our hearts, we can resource ourselves and learn to integrate our experiences to live a more empowered life. The world needs all of our compassion, health, and wisdom.
For 27 years, Karuna Training has offered time-tested and skills-based mindfulness and compassion programs in Europe and North America. The next certificate program will begin in spring 2022. The two-year program will include both online seminars and in-person retreats in Colorado. For more information visit www.karunatraining.com
