Why train in wise awareness?

Recent research is showing how wisdom can be used in practical ways in our daily lives, as well as opening deeper understanding on a more existential level.

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 and learn from our life experience; make better decisions and to be better equipped to manage change and uncertainty.

What can I expect from a wise awareness course?

  • The Wise Awareness Course is a further development from Mindfulness Courses such as MBCT and complements the Compassion Course (MBCL).
  • The course draws on a range of rich resources including the Buddhist roots of mindfulness and other ancient teachings as well as the new field of wisdom science. It has been developed by Annie Akasati and Karuna Hridaya together.
