Counseling & Mentoring


The Nalanda Institute Counseling & Mentoring network offers a pioneering approach of integrating mindfulness, compassion, and embodied practices into a broad range of contemplative therapies and mentoring arts. We see counseling, recovery, coaching and mentoring as guided journeys of self-healing and life change based on mindful self-awareness, and emotional self-transformation.

Our therapists, coaches, and mentors are trained to help guide your journey and empower you to use timeless contemplative practice informed by practical neuropsychology to develop a wise mind, warm heart, and altruistic way of life in our interdependent world.

We recommend:

  • counseling for those who want help using contemplative insights and methods to work through challenges in their personal life;
  • mentoring or coaching for those who want guidance on how to weave contemplative science and practice into their professional life.

Whether you’ve had years of conventional psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, decades of training and experience in a mainstream profession, or you are totally new to therapy or just embarking on a more mindful career path, we are ready to help. Our network is open to anyone interested in using contemplative skills to heal themselves and/or help others more quickly, deeply and effectively.
