Teacher's Bio

Arun Sardana

Transformational facilitator, Storyteller, Creative Visionary and Founder/CEO of karuna & the Karuna Happiness Foundation. Arun’s journey of transformation began in India while growing up in a complex environment of not only a loving family and profound religiosity but also personal sexual abuse and domestic violence. While his story may be different, the narrative is the same as that of many others. The stress and trauma of the early years continued to shape his adulthood including the constant pursuit of answers to existential questions – Why am I here? How can I find peace? How can science solve the puzzle of mental wellbeing? This journey ultimately culminated in the founding of karuna – the desire to remove suffering through unbound compassion. Arun obtained his undergraduate education in hospitality management and also in business administration in India. He came to the U.S. in 1988 and completed his MBA from The Johns Hopkins University, in 2000. In 2019, in order to inform his work with orphans and abused children in Costa Rica, he completed a Masters in Clinical Psychology and Education with a focus on Spirituality, Mind & Body, from Teachers College, Columbia University, New York. Over the past 25 years, Arun has built a successful entrepreneurial practice in financial services. It is through that success that karuna has become a reality.

Cesar Cervantes

Starting at the age of 19, Cesar was a stand-up comedian and actor featured on Comedy Central and in Hollywood films. But after more than a decade of laughs, he realized he wanted to connect on a deeper level with his audience. He found that nothing gave him greater joy than helping others learn about human connection. Now, as a speaker and public speaking coach, he helps people connect with themselves first, then their audience. You can watch all three of his TEDx talks featured on the TED platform.

She has been on a mission of connecting people all over the world to the power of the human voice for many years and does so through a unique program and healing modality she created called ‘Vocal Transformation’.

A true student of earth and spirit, Maryn has dedicated many years of her life to studying ancient wisdom by participating in a wide variety of healing circles from many different cultures, ranging from Vedic and Tibetan wisdom traditions to South American shamanism.
