From the heart

I value the spiritual atmosphere of Naropa where in students are able and encouraged to grow spiritually. This is unusual in American academia which emphasizes left brain sequential logic. At Naropa a student can develop right brain intuitive abilities as well as intellectual skills. This is essential for a spiritually balanced person.
