Deeper Wisdom Is Waiting For You

Karuna Training is a non-capitalist, non-dogmatic program designed for you to go deeper.
Karuna teaches Mahayana Buddhism through a Vajrayana lens, combining Buddhist principles with contemplative meditation practice, skills development, embodiment training, and ongoing community support.
You don’t need  to be attached to a specific teacher or dogma to benefit from Karuna - it’s about discovering your own brilliant sanity and learning to transform everyday life challenges into opportunities for openness and wisdom.

   Karuna Training is for you if...

  • You feel like you're hitting a wall with the current support you have available, whether it's therapy, your religious community, or other systems
  • You have experience with meditation and you want to go deeper within yourself and your practice
  • You want to uncover the blind spots hindering your life and relationships
  • You desire to go deeper into your heart so you can help heal yourself and others in the world through therapy, art, or other practices
  • You want to see the goodness in yourself and others

How Karuna has impacted its participants

Karuna marked a turning point in my spiritual journey. It gave me, first and foremost, a community of practitioners that I love and trust, and who share my deep desire for spiritual growth. Karuna also instilled in me a deep appreciation and reverence for all that goes into being present with myself and with another person. Lastly, and perhaps most profoundly, Karuna developed in me a confidence in my ability find and dwell in my heart, and to help others do the same.

Karuna had a way of touching each part of my life. Like a powerful mountain stream, it removed obstacles and cleared new channels for communication. Through its powerful practices and teachings, I came away appreciating myself and my capacities in a new light.
Rees Sweeney-Taylor
A tremendous experience. I saw my cohort and myself settle into something profound together by the end of the two-year program. It was incredible and moving to witness and experience. The entire world needs Karuna now more than ever!
