Counseling & Mentoring
Like psychotherapy, contemplative learning aims at a working self-knowledge and self-mastery quite unlike what passes for knowledge and expertise in our day. Instead of impersonal facts and mechanical skills, it takes us on a self-healing journey of introspective analysis, reflective insight and transformative experience meant to awaken our minds, open our hearts and change our lives.
This is why the Nalanda teaching tradition, preserved in the Buddhist colleges of India and Tibet, complements group instruction with the personal guidance of long-term tutoring and mentoring bonds. At Nalanda, we’ve transplanted this ancient tradition into the West by complementing group classes, workshops and retreats with short and long term guiding relationships tailored to your personal aims and needs.
