Visionaries 2023

ANCIENT WISDOM FOR MODERN TIMES

Compassionate community framework weaves conscious leadership with conscious fellowship, intentionally expanding the voices we center. By realizing regenerative principles such as working in right relationship, empowered partnership, and innovative, adaptive responsiveness, we move towards Kripalu’s vision of a world united in service, well-being, justice, and peace.

This year, join Kripalu in welcoming a cohort of twelve global wellness leaders bringing their inspired practices of seeing, feeling, and healing to strengthen and repair the web of love that ties us all together. Join us for transformative online and on campus programs.
