Alumni Profile

"My work with MacAndrew at Naropa combined with
 my participation in the Mind and Life Summer Research Institute have affirmed that I want to be not just a researcher who studies mindfulness and contemplative practice, but a contemplative researcher."


Sit. Breathe deeply. Bow.

Naropa has over 6,500 alumni, including former students who attended Naropa for at least one semester. Naropa alumni are leaders in their fields, entrepreneurs, healers, educators, innovators. They start businesses, nonprofit, private practices and organizations. They show up differently in their fields because they know who they are and are unshakeable and grounded, while exuding compassion and non-judgment for others. In business, they are leading the change to "social profit" and the triple bottom line: serving people, planet and profit.
