Abstract: CONTEMPLATIVE EDUCATION IS AN EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY THAT INTEGRATES THREE CRITICAL ELEMENTS. Here’s how we practice those elements at Naropa University:Rigorous academics—Challenge yourself with the Naropa curriculum, which blends Eastern wisdom studies and traditional Western scholarship. Classes are small and thrilling. Understand that you will read and write a lot. Contemplative Practice—Bend your body and your mind through the meditation, yoga, and other mindfulness practices. Experiential Learning—Apply the wisdom and knowledge you’ve acquired and gain career insight and skills through global volunteerism, internships, and community-based learning.
