About the Joanna Macy Center @Naropa 

Mission: The Joanna Macy Center at Naropa (JMC@N) seeks to advance the vision and legacy of Dr. Joanna Macy’s work in order to empower present and future generations in building a more resilient world that works for all.

Building a more resilient world through Dr. Macy’s work, we focus on three specific areas: her root teachings known as The Work That Reconnects (WTR), Liberation Buddhist scholarship, and Nuclear Guardianship.

  • The Center is a platform for further advancement of and training in the WTR within Naropa University, the local community and the world at large.
  • We will create opportunities for research on her theories of the confluence of the Buddhist teachings, general systems theory, and the resulting social impact.
  • The Center will foster her vision around Nuclear Guardianship by promoting education and training future Nuclear Guardians.
