About the course leaders 

Annie Akasati and Carolyn (Karuna Hridaya) are co-founders of Love Mindfulness and members of the Triratna Buddhist Order. Both experienced teachers, they have drawn on their many years of personal mindfulness and meditation practice in developing this exciting new course. MBWA also draws on Carolyn’s background in neuroscience, including contemporary methods for developing wisdom that are congruent with mindfulness theory and practice. 

Why cultivate wise awareness? 

The benefits can be found in improving our capacity to take a wider perspective, understanding our views and emotional responses to events and how this can help us as we navigate everyday challenges. Training in wisdom helps us to self-reflect more effectively on any situation; make better decisions and to be better equipped to manage change and uncertainty.

What can I expect from a wise awareness course?

  • This course is a further development from the Mindfulness Courses and complements the Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living Course (MBCL).
  • It draws on both the Buddhist roots of mindfulness and contemporary science for practical ways of working effectively with the challenges and flux of life.
  • Sessions include opportunities for reflection and discussion, drawing on the wisdom already present within the group.
  • The course is conducted in a friendly and open atmosphere to encourage sharing and relationship building. 
  • You will learn to use meditation and practices designed to develop greater awareness and confidence.
  • There will be encouragement and support to maintain a home practice for the duration of the course.
