Karuna is the Sanskrit word for “compassion.” Compassion invites engagement with suffering persons with the intent of helping them heal. Many of us feel compassion for others’ suffering and would like to help but don’t know how. Karuna Care Education was established to respond to this need.

Please note that this course is currently under construction and only accepting waitlist applications at the moment.

“Ramhhoru dasi has a unique combination of assets to provide Karuna Care’s much needed resource within our devotee communities – namely, she has decades of experience in the professional world of counseling, along with decades of experience interacting within our ISKCON society and its leadership. I am absolutely confident that her gift to our devotional community will have a dramatic impact on improving the quality of care and attention given to our members.”

“What I loved about Rambhoru Brinkmann as my Training Supervisor was her ability to walk with her students without imposing her views on them, but rather, gently challenging them to seek their own truths.”
