As a student in Naropa University’s Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling concentration—part of the MA Clinical Mental Health Counseling program—you will not only explore human mental and emotional health, but you will also delve into mindfulness, meditation, Gestalt awareness as well as different states of consciousness, and the nature of creativity to help clients—and yourself—live the most joyous life possible. Through academic course work, deep introspection, including your own psychotherapy and mindfulness training, and 900 hours of clinical experience, you will come to a greater understanding of yourself, the world, and how you can ease the path for others. Graduates from Naropa’s Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling concentration program have gone on to become therapists in private practice, addiction counselors, mindfulness trainers, equine therapists, school counselors, grief counselors, and more.
The master’s degree program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling is a 60-credit hour program that offers theoretical grounding in transpersonal psychology along with rigorous clinical and mindfulness training.
