As the staff team of the Karuna Institute we are committed to working towards creating a training community that is both inclusive and proactive in creating a culture in which students from marginalised and minority groups feel welcomed and valued. We recognise that our staff team is not nearly as representative as we would like, as is true of the psychotherapy profession generally. Our hope is that our training can be part of an active movement that can meet the needs of all members of our community and, equally important, train professionals who reflect the rich diversity of our society.

Course Description:


As this Course is designed to meet the HIPC, UKCP Supervision Requirements we ask for the following prerequisite. Candidates should be at least 3 Years Post Registration Practice or have a minimum of 600 Post Registration Client Hours. We welcome Colleagues who meet these Requirements from both UKCP and BACP.

The Training is intended for those colleagues who are UKCP Registrants wanting to be eligible to apply for the UKCP Directory of Recognised Supervisors, for those attending as a CPD (80 hours) and for colleagues who want to participate in this model of Contemplative Supervision developed at the Karuna Institute.

Course Participants will be introduced to and practice key concepts of Contemplative Supervision. You will be asked to engage in Small Group Active Supervision, Case Presentation and Contemplative Practices. We will engage in collective enquiry into territories that include EDI including all Protected Categories,Safeguarding, Climate Crisis and Outdoor Practice, Pandemic, Spiritual Crisis, Gender Transitioning, Aspects of Psychiatry to name some.

We will invite colleagues from different traditions to input on the above and other themes and offer the opportunity to experience Small Group Supervision with some of them. We will also invite Core Process Supervisors to offer Contemplative Small Group Supervision.

The Training held residentially at the Karuna Institute on Dartmoor offers us opportunity to resource, eat good food, dance, walk on Dartmoor, look at the stars and enjoy the companionship of colleagues.  A chance, for us as a community, to both deepen into the mystery and tap into our collective wisdom.
