Event description

Description

If we dare to feel deeply into ourselves, we know the current state of the world is directly affecting each of us.

Some of us are choosing to shut down, leave social media sites, and even avoid the news. That won’t help address these times (though it may prove less stressful).

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.
