Reimagining Resolutions: Embracing Change for the New Year
Karuna Live! With Sandra Ladley
Wednesday, January 10th, 2024, from 6 - 7 PM, Mountain Time
As the New Year approaches, we think of change and the possibilities of making a fresh start in the areas of our lives where we may want or need to. Longings and resolutions run rampant, and at the same time, we’re haunted by past failures and habits we can’t seem to break. During winter, it’s easy to become disheartened and lose our bearings when spring feels so distant. How do we make changes in our lives when it seems so hard? How can we tap into what research shows as the “fresh start effect” that is more available to us in January?
Sandra will explore Reimagining Resolutions: Embracing Change for the New Year in an upcoming Karuna Newsletter. She will facilitate a Karuna Live! introductory session on this topic on Wednesday, January 10th, from 6 - 7 PM Mountain Time.
On Karuna Training
In Karuna Training, we find strength in the intrinsic openness, wisdom, and compassion that is available to us as human beings. In the one-hour Karuna Live introductory session, we will have time to reflect and discuss how we can draw on our innate wisdom as a resource 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 world’s wisdom 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 28 years, Karuna Training has offered time-tested mindfulness and compassion-based programs in Europe and North America.
A cohort is forming for the next Karuna Training program starting in 2024. Stay turned for more information!
