“People find it quite easy to have beliefs and to hold on to them and to let their whole world be a product of their belief system. They also find it quite easy to attack those who disagree. The harder, more courageous thing, which the hero and the heroine, the warrior, and the mystic do, is continually to look one’s beliefs straight in the face, honestly and clearly, and then step beyond them. That requires a lot of heart and kindness. It requires being able to touch and know completely, to the core, your own experience, without harshness, without making any judgment.” Pema Chodron
Drawing on our own innate wisdom and experiences, we will explore letting go of judgment, picking up honesty, and leaning into life with vulnerability and love.
“This is the book that saved my life when I was on an extended meditation retreat. Every time I wanted to shut down or run away, I opened up this book to the most perfect sentence or two that gifted me the wisdom I needed exactly in that moment to remind me to stay with whatever was arising.” - Karuna
Leaning on the stellar instruction she has received from her teachers -- Hector Marcel, Kelly Lindsey, Denise Deniger, Michael Hewett, and Keith Kachtick, and Life Itself, Karuna designs her classes to create the type of reflection from which you can find a meaningful and enriching life.
Sassy, fun, and knowledgeable, class with Karuna is sure to inspire. You can expect to learn exactly what you need to create a joyful and curious life. Expect your paradigm to shift in playful and potent ways.
Karuna has studied Tibetan Buddhism extensively. She has taught and guided hundreds of hours of meditation sessions. It is her greatest desire that all beings be happy and free.
When she isn't guiding meditation, working on writing a book, teaching a Dharma class, or trail running, you will find Karuna hiking with her husband Joseph and two dogs, Ruby Rose and Stella Bean in the mountains of ColoRocky.
