Naropa Magazine

Naropa Magazine

Through a rich array of articles, interviews, multimedia offerings, and artwork, Naropa Magazine shares how Naropa’s mission of contemplative education manifests in the classroom through innovative approaches to teaching, learning, and research, and how that mission is expressed in the creative ways that students, alumnx, and faculty “meet the world as it is and change it for the better.” Naropa Magazine is mailed to Naropa alumnx and friends of Naropa University. See the 2021–22 issue of the magazine below or a PDF of the 2019–20 issue of Naropa Magazine.

The cover artist for the 21–22 issue of the magazine is Paula Gasparini-Santos, a Brazilian-born artist living in Boulder, Colorado, and a graduate of Naropa’s MA in Transpersonal Art Therapy program. The heart is a reoccurring symbol in Paula’s work because, in her own words, “You have to expose that heart, you have to expose everything that is within for us to be able to do the work of healing.” Her art supports her heart’s calling to help people, in their transparency, bringing truth to light, so there can be an honest conversation and more honest connection and intimacy.
