Harvesting the Richness of Our Lives
Karuna Live! with Sandra Ladley
Saturday, October 15th, 2022, from 10 - 11 am Mountain Time
Autumn is the season of harvesting, celebrating, and replenishing our stores to help nourish us through the winter. The same seasonal approach can be applied to our lives; we can find what nourishes us to help us make it through personal times of darkness and cold. How are you at recognizing and appreciating the good work you do in this life? What do you draw on when you are feeling helpless or overwhelmed by the pain of our world - which is so much of what we experience now? What heartens and strengthens you that you share with others, like good food?
In Karuna Training, we find courage and strength in the intrinsic openness, wisdom, and compassion that we can tap into as human beings. In this one-hour Karuna Live introductory session, we will have time to reflect on our lives, practice taking in the good of our experience, and discuss how we can replenish and extend compassion to ourselves and others in an ongoing way. The program is open to everyone and will include guided meditation, an experience of the Karuna teachings, and a discussion of upcoming Karuna Training offerings.
The word Karuna means compassion in Sanskrit. Karuna Training brings together a community of people who trust the wisdom of the world to awaken our compassionate hearts. We can learn to resource ourselves and 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 mindfulness and compassion-based programs in Europe and North America.
