The Karuna Institute

The Karuna Institute, founded by Maura and Franklyn Sills in 1984, is an international residential Training and Retreat Centre. All the activities of the Institute are based on mindfulness practice. As such, Karuna is one of the oldest Centres worldwide to integrate and teach mindfulness practices as professional healing skills in the west. We offer trainings in Core Process Psychotherapy and Craniosacral Biodynamic Therapy with both streams leading to professional qualifications.

We also offer retreats for silence and re-connection with ourselves; time for just 'being', with all the possibilities that can unfold from that experience. The combination of the stunning position and the uniqueness of the teaching has made Karuna Institute renowned throughout the world as a centre for residential training and retreats. The Institute provides opportunities for deepening embodied awareness and cultivating presence and open-heartedness in relationship.
