Are you discouraged and overwhelmed by everything that is happening? Have you lost trust in yourself and others to keep an open mind and heart? In Karuna Training, we find courage and strength through tapping the intrinsic heath, wisdom, and compassion that we were all born with. In this one-hour Karuna Live introductory program, we will explore the unbounded resilience of our open hearts and how to extend compassion to ourselves and others in our everyday lives. The program is open to everyone and will include guided meditation, an experience of the Karuna teachings, and a discussion about the next two-year Karuna Training program starting in 2022.
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 skills-based mindfulness and compassion programs in Europe and North America. The two-year program starting in 2022 will include six online seminars and four in-person retreats in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado.
