From the Heart

Naropa provides an opportunity for students to integrate their inner passions with an interspiritual worldview.  The student journey combines personal experience with intellectual rigor encouraging amazing transformations of the individual and society. Auspicious coincidence and deep listening create a template for restructuring each student's life path.
