About The Graduate Training

The Karuna Graduate Training is for graduates of the Basic Training
In this year-long certificate program participants learn skills for how to bring the elements of Karuna Training into their work and personal lives.

The heart of the Graduate Training is a 75-hour practicum which includes direct work with others in a project that you choose and design. The process encourages you to live your Karuna in the world and to apply it very directly in an area of your life that will challenge you deeply in personal growth.
The Graduate Training helps to uncover numerous opportunities that allow you to live skillfully from a place of compassionate exchange with the world. It also helps you to develop real skills in leading Karuna processes. This includes facilitating groups in Compassionate Exchange, Speaking from the Heart, Contemplative Experiential Exercises, and Mindfulness Awareness Practice. You will also take an in-depth dive into possible applications of Body, Speech, and Mind.
