We excel at spiritual formation.
Our curriculum has been carefully constructed based on centuries of knowledge from traditional Tibetan Buddhist monastic universities combined with Western approaches to contemplative pedagogy and spiritual development. At Maitripa, you will have opportunities to develop goals and put them into practice, while immersing in a learning-centered community of scholar-practitioners. Courses guide students – from exploring their own voice and aspirations, to forming their personal theology of care, to practicing offering spiritual care to others – in a container that holds the well-being of both caregiver and care-receiver as its primary aspiration. Students build a solid foundation for lifelong integration of personal, spiritual, and professional growth, the basis for compassionate and skillful actions.
