Words & Wisdom Podcast

"Where Intellect Meets Intuition"

The purpose of the "Words & Wisdom" podcast is to provide a virtual space for people to learn more about and participate more fully in the Naropa community, as well as to hold critical, respectful, and authentic discussions about issues related to Naropa and contemplative education in general. This podcast was born out of the support and interest of the Naropa community. If you would like to get involved, have suggestions for how to improve our program, or have ideas about content for the episodes, we welcome all feedback! Please email Matt Robertson if interested.
