SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD 1:00 – 4:00 PM
& SATURDAY, JUNE 2ND 1:00 - 4:00 PM

The cost for the programs is $25 each or $40 for both.

Sometimes, no matter how much meditation we have done, we may still be still haunted by familiar, persistent, difficult emotions. How can we work with our emotions instead of struggling against them?

We may experience emotions such as fear, anger, or lethargy as obstacles—and for good reason. In Karuna Training, we learn powerful practices to relate directly with such emotions to uncover the tremendous wisdom at their essence. During these two practices days, participants will have the chance to take part in a Body Speech and Mind Group (BSM), which is one of these powerful practices. This contemplative practice trains us in the experience of loving kindness and compassionate exchange. It is a practice of making friends with oneself and facilitates the discovery and trust in the intrinsic sanity of self and others.

These stand-alone classes are open to any participants of an Introduction to Contemplative Psychology weekend with Sandra Ladley or Melissa Moore.

What is Karuna Training?
In Karuna Training we prepare people for staying open in the face of difficulty: emotional, psychological, behavioral, and ultimately social and cultural. Karuna is the Sanskrit word meaning compassion. We train people in the potency of leading their lives with an open heart. Drawn from the Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist view that difficult emotions are gateways to intelligence and enlightenment, we can learn to trust in what we are feeling and to mine those energies for wisdom.
