Karuna Workshop

The Karuna Workshop ®  has been specifically designed to enable individuals to catalyse and cultivate an internal organic process that addresses self-destructive behaviour.

 

The word Karuna comes from the Sanskrit kara, meaning “to do” or “to make,” indicating an action-based form of compassion which in turn leads to taking action to alleviate suffering

Karuna is typically translated as “compassion or self-compassion” in English and is based on the powerful concept developed in the consciousness based spiritual paths.

What is Karuna?

Research has shown that self-harm and self-destructive behaviour can be initiated when vulnerable individuals feel they are unable to cope with overwhelming or destructive emotions including stress, anxiety, sadness, loss of control, anger, guilt, shame or self-criticism

 

The cultivation of Karuna has shown to increases self-esteem, heals emotional trauma and significantly enhances emotional health and wellbeing, in addition to reducing anxiety, stress, and harmful emotional states.

This experiential workshop is grounded in mindfulness and self-compassion integrating practical guidance with psychology, mind-body medicine with current evidence-based understanding and knowledge.

 

The workshop is intended to help in pragmatic, practical ways, facilitate you in realising and accessing our existing inner resilience and understanding.
