Naropa is a place of contemplative learning. This means that students aren't forced to stuff a bunch of information in their brains, memorize it, and then spit it back out on a test only to forget about it the next week. That often happened in high school, but not here. Contemplative learning means actually thinking about what we are learning, processing it, and making sense of it for ourselves.

    Naropa is not a real college, but a gentle container for those looking to find themselves. Save yourself some time and money by starting a serious meditation practice, making some good friends, and finding a skilled therapist. You'll get the same or better results!

    A contemplative school that focuses on individual growth as a human being. The most difficult work at this school is the internal work that will strengthen through practice and mindfulness. An alternative form of education for students who feel as though they don't fit in with modern day college.
