Karuna Training Certificate in Contemplative Psychology

Karuna Training is a comprehensive program in Contemplative Psychology that teaches us how to work skillfully with ourselves first, and then how to offer ourselves to others through the innate potency of the heart. The program joins deep study of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist principles with contemplative practice, skills development, and ongoing group interaction and community support. It is a journey of discovering one's own brilliant sanity, and of learning how to exchange ourselves for others so that we can transform everyday life challenges into opportunities for openness and wisdom.

Spirit Rock, Woodacre 2018

DAYLONG SPIRIT ROCK:TBC: The Healing Experience of Trauma
Sakti Rose

"The mind may have forgotten but the body has not." Freud

Trauma disembodies us. Our body gets overwhelmed by stimulus or shuts down giving rise to the patterns of fight, flight and freeze. Traumatic events leave physiological and emotional scars that alter neurological structures and functions. By developing skills, individuals can recognize and reduce the painful effects of trauma and thereby free up energy for meditation and life itself.

During this daylong, we will explore the interconnection of meditation and somatic skills. In an atmosphere of safety, Sharda and Sakti will create a container for experiencing some useful skills for identifying and working with traumatic activation patterns that can obstruct our spiritual progress on the path. The key ingredient that can help us transform into healing is awareness. Through awareness we can find ways to untangle from this morass of inner constrictions and confusion and find a way forward to movement and release.

One of the unique expressions of Buddhism is to recognize that our true safety lies within. By learning to ground ourselves while sitting in meditation, walking, and engaging in other simple somatic and meditative practices, we may begin to feel more trusting of our present moment experience. We will also include time for dharma talks, discussion and other experiential learning.

Continuing Education (CE) Credit: 6 CE credits available for MFTs, LCSWs, psychologists and nurses from SRMC-SCRC for $45. Prepayment available on website. For more information, see Continuing Education (CE) Credit.


TRAUMA AND MEDITATION Foundational Skills: January 22- February 19, 2018-- 5 week series Monday mornings 10:00 to 12:00 with Sakti Rose

This class is designed for meditators who have met with barriers in their meditative experience that inhibit their progress on the path and leaves them unsure why. This 5-week class willprovide foundational somatic skills to help individuals identify and release patterns of traumatic activation in meditation and in life. We will explore traumatic experiences which give rise to stuck patterns of fight, flight and freeze. Traumatic events leave physiological and emotional scars that alter neurological structures and functions. By developing skills, individuals can recognize and reduce the painful effects of trauma and thereby free up energy for meditation.

By recognizing the particular symptoms and by working directly in the body, the trauma can be healed through specifically discharging the unresolved energy of the trauma that gets bound in the nervous system in a variety of ways as body constriction, emotional reactivity, and spiritual disturbances. With the educational tools taught in this class, one's nervous system can begin to regain its capacity to self regulate.

This class is offered for meditators. This class requires people who are willing to participate in their personal unfolding through experiential exercise, sharing and inquiry.

former and new students encouraged to attend.
