8:00am CT (60 minutes with an optional 15 minutes to chat in small groups at the end), Thursdays
2 June - 18 August 2022
We'll take two weeks off before starting the next module.
In this module, we will be leaning on Pema Chödrön’s book, “When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times.”
“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man's-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again. ” ― Pema Chödrön
We’ll explore how to use painful and/or difficult experiences to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and courage. Likewise, we’ll examine what could be helpful in chaotic situations or when habitual patterns surface (again) in our life. Gently we’ll acknowledge what those habitual patterns are and also how they have served us in the past. Perhaps we’ll decide what next we want to pick up and put down. Mid-year is a wonderful time to take inventory and decide if any calibrating would better serve us for the rest of the year.
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.
