I am writing to tell you that I am applying to Naropa University for admission next fall. I am applying for a masters in Contemplative Psychotherapy. The major is a three year program that combines Western Psychology with Buddhist Psychology and will prepare me to get a license as a therapist. I’m excited about the opportunity to combine western and eastern approaches to mental health and development as this has been the focus of my reading lately. Because of my study abroad program to Bhutan with Wisdom Study Abroad was so influential on me and also your huge help planning my trip to Kopan Monastery in Nepal, I just wanted to thank you. If I had not gone to Bhutan with Wisdom Study Abroad and studied Buddhist philosophy with you, I’m not sure that I would be applying to Naropa University! Thank you Jim.
