Program Overview

Program Description:

Naropa University’s concentration in Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology—part of our Clinical Mental Health Counseling master's degree—is a counseling psychology program that grounds itself in the Buddhist contemplative wisdom tradition and includes current humanistic psychological approaches to give you the insight and skills to show up fully for yourself and others.

Develop insight, connections and skill in your large and small group process classes. Cultivate self awareness through meditation classes and retreats. Discover your inherent compassion to guide others with humility and grace.

Equipped with outstanding mindfulness skills and awareness, Naropa’s Contemplative Psychotherapy alumni go on to become counselors in agency and private practice settings, case managers, and mental health center directors. Alumni earn doctorate degrees, establish new treatment programs, or go on to teach nationally and internationally.

Clinical Mental Health Counseling Internship: Complete a 9-month, 700-hour supervised clinical internship.

As part of Naropa's graduate Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology program, your third year experience also includes weekly meditation with classmates and small group tutorials.
