Karuna News

Hello friends. We are happily overwhelmed with resonant feedback around the globe, and with a team of 20 dedicated volunteers, our site now hosts close to 300 inspiring stories. Thank you for co-creating a new story!

In a time when it is easy to contract into fear, many continue to expand towards love. Our second newsletter showcases beautiful examples of how music inspired 3 generations in a room, how leaders can selflessly lead by example, and even how wars can end when we tune into a greater cause. Onwards to spreading more "Karuna" in the world!
