Lets celebrate International Women's Day!

On the occasion of March 8th, the Karuna team and I reiterate our commitment to women's empowerment. In India, Nepal and Tibet, where we have been active for 20 years, we are helping women to be key actors of change. They can become true sources of inspiration for their communities and for future generations.

In its latest report, the World Economic Forum states that global gender equality will not be achieved for the next 99.5 years. It would therefore take another century to bridge these inequalities and enable women to have the same rights and opportunities as men!

Together, let's empower women to become leaders for change!

To go further, I invite you to discover the latest article on this topic posted on the Karuna-Shechen website. >>> read here

I also invite you to participate in the next Karuna round-table on the theme of women's empowerment through meditative tools >>> participate in the event

Thought of the week

Harmful beings are everywhere, like space itself.
Impossible it is that all should be suppressed.
But let this angry mind alone be overthrown,
And it's as though all foes had been subdued.
