8am CT, Thursdays, 5-26 March, 2020
A 4-Week Series with Karuna; the second in her Living Beautifully year-long exploration with Pema Chödrön. No need to have attended the prior modules -- you're welcome to register for individual modules or the entire year-long series.
Each class will be an invitation to recharge your battery, recommit to living beautifully, and reset your intention for the week.
In this module, we will be leaning on Pema Chödrön’s book, “How to Meditate.”
There will be no less inspiration as we take four weeks to hone our meditation skills. Appropriate for experienced and beginning meditators alike – we can all use refreshers to hone and level-up our practice!
“If we can train ourselves through meditation to be more open and more accepting toward the wild arc of our experience, if we can lean into the difficulties of life and the ride of our minds, we can become more settled and relaxed whatever life brings us.” – Pema Chodron
We will explore five remarkably helpful qualities that begin to emerge over our lifetime of practice:
- Nurturing steadfastness with ourselves
- Generating clear seeing
- Cultivating courage
- Developing attention and presence
- Embracing “No.Big.Deal.”
Perfect prep for anyone who has signed up for the “Living Beautifully” Mind Oasis Meditation Retreat happening Apr 2nd-5th 2020 in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
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.
