In this module, we will be leaning on Pema Chödrön’s book, “Welcoming the Unwelcome.”
“We are at a time when old systems and ideas are being questioned and falling apart, and there is a great opportunity for something fresh to emerge. I have no idea what that will look like and no preconceptions about how things should turn out, but I do have a strong sense that the time we live in is a fertile ground for training in being open-minded and open-hearted. If we can learn to hold this falling apart–ness without polarizing and without becoming fundamentalist, then whatever we do today will have a positive effect on the future.” Pema Chodron
Amen, sister! Between a pandemic, political, social, and racial strife, a changing climate, and whatever else we might personally have going on, let’s face it, life is hard!
But I’ve heard from a few wise souls, You CAN Do HARD Things! Let’s learn how to do so mindfully, wholeheartedly, and with courage and grace!
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.
