What is a Karuna Session?

A Karuna Session is a ritual experience of human connection. We have taken a radical approach to health and wellness of the physical body by caring for our clients as humans have always cared for their young: through compassionate, nurturing touch and embrace. We can give you a respite from the stresses of daily life in just sixty minutes and give you an opportunity to feel comforted and cared for. 

We have designed a simple, five-step process that reboots the mind, relaxes the body, relieves the heart and refreshes the soul:

Initiation: Transition from daily life into our world with a ritual that allows you to feel welcomed, honored, cared for and - most importantly - in control of your experience. 


Introduction: Establish trust and boundaries, review protocol and ground rules. Receive compassionate touch at a slow, gentle pace. Stimulate your body's natural oxytocin production.


Immersion: Experience feeling safe, peaceful and nurtured as two practitioners embrace you in a fashion that mimics being held by your mother as an infant. Immersion is rare opportunity to get out of your head and into your body.


Integration: Anchor the peace and relaxation felt during Immersion into your body's muscle memory. This step is similar to shavasana in yoga.


Closure: Enjoy a light snack, ask questions, process your thoughts, prepare for re-entry into the default world and bid a fond adieu to your practitioners. 

Our clients report feeling calm, happy, relaxed, open and at peace after their session. We welcome you back into the human race in a gentle, compassionate fashion. Karuna Sessions gives you an opportunity to tell yourself a different story about interacting with other people in a kind and respectful manner and allows you to feel safe in your body.
