Wednesday, October 20th 6 pm - 8 pm Mountain Time
With Sandra Ladley, MA
Are you finding it hard to extend compassion to yourself and others during this time? Are you wondering how you might find the strength to keep your heart open when you’re overwhelmed, angry or discouraged? This two-hour 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.
For over 27 years, Karuna Training has offered time-tested skills-based mindfulness and compassion programs in Europe and North America. The two-year program includes six online seminars and four in-person retreats in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado.
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. As we deepen our hearts, we can resource ourselves and learn to integrate our experiences to live a more empowered life. The world needs all of our compassion, health, and wisdom.
