Meditation Training

A Naropa Education

At Naropa University, academic rigor facilitates intellectual growth, but it doesn't stop there. By going beyond academic rigor to include self-awareness, mindfulness, community building, and experiential learning techniques, Naropa delivers an experience that is purposefully designed to be a whole-person education. Unique and relevant challenges will take you further than traditional education, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Our approach, known as contemplative education, includes not only the logical, rational, and discursive linear aspects of the subject matter, but also encompasses the body, the heart, and the totality of one's conscious experience in learning. At Naropa, education is aimed at the mind, the body, and the heart. Faculty members are committed to working closely with students to foster development in each of these areas, so that the educational experience is a truly transformational one.
