The Dharma Artist

"Creative" is your middle name. Like many students at Naropa University, you have always found yourself a little outside of the norm, and you love any opportunity to express your truth, whether through visual art, writing, performance, music, or some combination. You have a curious and experimental mind that always seeks out new possibilities.When Naropa founder Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche first arrived in the United States, he said, "Where are the poets? Take me to your poets!" This value of creative practice has remained at Naropa ever since its founding, fostering an environment of artistic innovation and emphasizing creative collaboration over competition. Creative minds, including the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Diane DiPrima, John Cage, Meredith Monk, and Jerry Granelli contributed to making Naropa the hot spot of creative experimentation that it is today.

The Healer

Nothing makes you happier than making others happy. Your empathy makes you a caring friend, and you feel things more intensely than others. You're the person your friends seek out when in need. Like many students at Naropa University, wellness is of utmost importance to you—mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual—making you mindful of the foods you eat and environments you choose to be in.With the recognition of "the inherent goodness and wisdom of each human being" as part of its mission statement, Naropa places a strong value on compassion and accommodating diverse learning styles. Offering a number of degree programs in psychology and therapy, Naropa has numerous healers among its alumni, students, faculty, and staff.
