Our bodies and minds are hard-wired for compassion; and we can turn that compassion toward benefiting others and growing our heart potential through Karuna Training. This one-day introduction utilises contemplative methods in the development of compassion, and introduces participants to the fundamental tenets of contemplative psychology.
Karuna Training is a programme in Contemplative Psychology that combines the wisdom of the meditative Buddhist tradition with the methods of Western medicine and psychology. Karuna Training is designed for people who work professionally with others, as well as for those who are interested in personal development using a contemplative model. It is particularly suitable for therapists, medical professionals, teachers, artists, organisational leaders, and parents.
