The birthplace of the modern mindfulness movement, Naropa University is challenging mainstream higher education by inviting the whole student—mind, body, and spirit—to show up in the classroom.

We believe education shouldn’t be just about acing tests or memorizing facts—but should also help cultivate wisdom and compassion for the benefit of all.
