The program is applicable to all faiths and spiritual backgrounds, and we include everyone, all gender identities, and access needs are accommodated.
Karuna Training is well suited for medical professionals, therapists, teachers, coaches, artists, business managers, and parents. Karuna is a community of people who trust the wisdom of the world to awaken our compassionate hearts.
Karuna Training is a journey of discovering one’s own brilliant sanity, and of learning how to exchange ourselves with others so that we can transmute everyday life challenges into opportunities of openness and wisdom.
