Karuna Live: The Art of Aging

With Sandra Ladley

Saturday, July 15, 2023, from 10 - 11 am Mountain Time


What if aging wasn’t something to be embarrassed of, or to hide?  What if we could show and tell our age as an honored elder?  What if we could celebrate the wisdom and refined attunement that comes with adapting to changes on a daily basis?  This is not a fantasy; people have lived this way in communities across the globe over time. We’ve looked to our elders as examples and wisdom holders of how to approach life and death. 

What is the art of living and aging well? How can we support each other in this? 

Sandra will explore this topic in an upcoming Karuna newsletter and she will facilitate a discussion on this topic at the Karuna Live! Introductory session on July 15th, from 10 - 11 Mountain Time.

On Karuna Training 

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 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 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. 

A cohort is forming for the next Karuna Training program starting in September 2023. You can find more information here.
