Karuna Training

March 15th—March 17th

Date details +

    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?

    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.


    A new two year cycle of Karuna begins in Albuquerque in December of 2018.  For more information and to apply, please go to:
