Karuna Live! Invoking a Wisdom Mandala

September 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MDT

Free – $10.00

A wisdom mandala is an ancient tool for organizing the world and understanding inter-relatedness. In a colorful circle divided to hold the directions, elements, psychological aspects, and wisdom of the world, humans have understood the importance of depicting the world’s knowledge in a concise and evocative manner. In Karuna, we draw from the Wisdom Mandala of the Five Buddha Families, which has an outer aspect, the five elements of space, water, earth, fire, and wind,  an inner part, which is the way of emotions, and a secret aspect that has to do with transmuting confusion into wisdom. The Five Buddha Family Mandala arises from the Bön tradition, the indigenous religion of Tibet, which melded with the Tantric Buddhist teachings. Together this wisdom mandala adds daily direction and guidance. So come and explore the magic of invoking a wisdom mandala.

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.
