“My training at Naropa has opened up a whole new world of insights as to how to be in relationship to others. I show up more authentically in my relationships now, and as a therapist there is no greater tool to learn.”

Alumni Highlight

“The Naropa Art Therapy program has prepared me by teaching me to be open to questions, to be curious, and to trust the process, myself, and my training. I also find that my art therapy education gives me a wider avenue with which I can approach students and assist them in exploring, expressing, and healing themselves.”
