Naropa University: a western school that teaches eastern wisdom

About ten minutes ago I was introduced a very unique university in Boulder, Colorado. Naropa Univeristy was founded by the well-known Tibetan Buddhist, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1974. He had the vision of combining Eastern philosophy and wisdom with Western’s traditional education practices to redefine America’s education system. Today Naropa is pushing many boundaries in our normal method of education and offers degrees that are unheard of in this country like ecopsychology and a wide array of other therapeutic degrees like somatic and transpersonal counseling.grad-academics
