The Journey to Contemplative Living

Nalanda Institute is a non-profit that offers programs combining mind science with mind-training skills, to end stress, nurture happiness, and cultivate lives of sustainable well-being, compassion, and altruism.

Integrating science, learning, and community, our four main programs—in Contemplative Psychotherapy, Sustainable Happiness, for Mindful Families, and Mindful Business—open doors to contemplative living in our digital age.

To support learning, we offer individual counseling and mentoring, online resources, translations and publications, professional supervision, and clinical research.

Our Four Year Program in Sustainable Happiness continues this fall. Learn more
