On August 21, 2022 Nalanda Institute hosted an online informational session about our upcoming offerings in the Contemplative Psychotherapy Program (CPP) starting this fall.

It was a wonderful gathering of prospective students, alumni and faculty. Dr. Joe Loizzo (founder and academic director) provided an overview of the Mindfulness, Compassion and Embodiment years and how they fit into our overall offerings.

We heard details about the various programs from Mar Aige (director of our Spanish and Portuguese program), Zachary Model (co-director of the Embodiment Year: Psychotherapy track), Kristen Rae Stevens (co-director of the Embodiment Year: Psychosocial Change track), and Rahshaana Green (co-director of the Compassion Year — Live Learning and Blended Learning programs). Several CPP graduates shared their experiences of the program and a Q&A session provided insight into what could be expected from the programs.

If you weren’t able to attend, or just want to rewatch, please enjoy this encore video! (This session’s audio is also available in Spanish and Portuguese).
