History of Naropa University

Naropa University is a Buddhist-inspired, liberal arts university in Boulder, Colorado offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, counseling, religious studies, creative writing, yoga, and more. Founded in 1974, Naropa is the pioneer of a teaching and learning approach called contemplative education, which blends western academics with eastern wisdom traditions for a more holistic, embodied student experience.

“Naropa offers a home for those who aren’t willing to conform to convention—the mystic, the healer, the prophet, the rebel, the artist, the revolutionary, the oddbalI—those who are incredible contributors to the evolution of society and of our planet. Naropa faculty and students are all of these things. It’s what makes Naropa what it is.”
