WHAT WE DO

Kula for Karma provides mindfulness-based mental healthcare for our post-pandemic world. 

WHAT THAT MEANS

As innovative leaders in the mental and behavioral health arenas, Kula for Karma helps people develop skills for cultivating inner resources and resilience in times of stress or crisis, and in response to trauma. 

WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH?

Good mental health is the next human right we are fighting for, and making that a reality is our mission.

"Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices." 

-  MentalHealth.gov

 

In other words, our mental health affects everything in our lives, including our physical health and the expression of our genes.

 Serving the mental health of people with trauma, addiction, and a wide range of mental health conditions since 2007, Kula for Karma’s solutions are more important than ever.


Our programs are built on science-backed data that shows mindfulness practices are one of the most effective ways to address and improve mental health:

A recent study shows mindfulness-based stress reduction is as effective as an antidepressant drug for treating anxiety disorders.

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?

Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally…in the service of self-understanding and wisdom. 

- Jon Kabat-Zinn 

"Mindfulness is a quality that every human being already possesses; it’s not something you have to conjure up, you just have to learn how to access it." 

- Mindful.org

OUR PROGRAMS

WHAT OUR PROGRAMS LOOK LIKE

Kula for Karma offers mindfulness classes fully customized for specific groups of people in specific spaces on specific schedules, and curates the classes with accessible gentle and restorative yoga postures, guided meditations, and breathing exercises. Dharma talks set a meaningful theme or topic for each class that allows the participants to explore how to support their own mental health for the long term.
