Online Free Event • Finding Strength Through Vulnerability

Melissa Moore

February 23, 2022

Suggested donation – $0.00 - $500.00

This nourishing 2-hour event will invite participants to explore their innate strengths experientially while highlighting the principles of Contemplative Psychology. Opening up to others can be daunting, especially with strangers or the people we love the most. Contemplative Psychology offers us access to methods that help us hold our fears with courage and take steps in trusting our most vulnerable emotions.


We find strength in community, loving-kindness, and in one’s innate compassion. All this leads to trusting our unconditioned health and brilliant sanity. Please join us for an experiential exploration of our shared potency of heart.


To learn even more and enjoy an in-depth experience in Contemplative Psychology, please consider joining the two-year certification program of Karuna Training, which begins at Shambhala Mountain Center May 4- 7, 2022.



This program will be recorded. Attendees will have complimentary viewing access for 30 days following the event. To engage in Q&A, please join us for the live session.
