An 8-Week Series with Karuna; the fifth 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. This is sure to be a special teaching, as she will have just returned from a 3-week meditation retreat.
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 “The Compassion Book.” which you can purchase here: https://amzn.to/33v8GDG
Also available are lojong cards (Compassion Cards) that can be placed on your fridge or altar throughout the week to inspire and recharge your practice! Click here to purchase: ttps://amzn.to/39xVWQO
The lojong teachings – or mind-training teachings – are Tibetan Buddhist slogans that are pithy and potent reminders for how to open our hearts to whatever is arising in our day-to-day life.Short enough to be memorized, the slogans are rich enough that we’ll explore the “top ten” or so over the series.
In the example, “In postmeditation, be a child of illusion,” the work is done on the cushion so that that there can be a sense of gentleness as you look out into the world; there is ease in your approach to daily life.
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.
