The Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling concentration supports Naropa University’s mission by training students to become master’s level graduates of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and licensed professional counselors. 

Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling recognizes and integrates the insights, attitudes, and practices of world wisdom traditions with modern psychological approaches. This integration provides the context for training students within the program, and it offers a context and a variety of techniques for the practice of professional counseling following the program. The program seeks to provide training that is grounded in rigorous academic work, a blend of critical thinking and contemplation, and skillful application of effective clinical skills, and it seeks to integrate this training with the practice of moment-to-moment awareness and present-centeredness.
