Karuna Live: Spring Break! Remember How to Play?
With Sandra Ladley
Saturday, April 15th, 2023, from 10 - 11 am Mountain Time
FREE - ONLINE
Spring is here! It’s time to move about and frolic! Our trees, flowers, and veggies are starting to open - why can’t we? Have you forgotten how to start fresh and play? Remember how much it meant to you as a child - how you could have fun creating a whole world out of nothing? Our natural capacity for play is a renewable resource for us as adults too. It’s never too late to open into nowness and not-knowing, to see what’s here, and try new things. This helps us cheer up and stretch into the dynamic nature of life.
In Karuna Training, we find 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, play, and discuss how we can draw on our innate creativity 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 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 28 years, Karuna Training has offered time-tested mindfulness and compassion-based programs in Europe and North America.
