Students Meditating

Contemplative Practice & Life

It is only within community that we can be fully known and experience the uniqueness and diversity of others.  Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s vision for Naropa went far beyond the walls of the classroom or the boundaries of the campus. We strive to create an atmosphere and offer practices that encourage and nurture a student’s authenticity and genuineness in order to be of service to others in a way that is open and nonjudgmental.

Through meditation and other contemplative practices, students have the opportunity for self-reflection, to explore their personal challenges and deepen trust in their own inherent worth and basic goodness. Through community dialog and inter-religious explorations, students can then engage in addressing the suffering and injustices of society with confidence and humility.
