CPP Open House


Please join us at our free, introductory Zoom gathering to meet Nalanda Institute Founder and Academic Director Dr. Joe Loizzo, MD, PhD and many of our core faculty! Together, the team would love to answer any questions you may have about the program and the core disciplines from the Nalanda tradition, central to contemplative healing.

As a society we have much to gain from a dialogue between Buddhist and Western psychology, such as the integration of mindfulness, compassion, and embodiment practices with contemporary neuropsychology, psychotherapy, and social justice work. This integration provides us with a path to break free from fixed and limited views of ourselves and be in a thriving relationship with everything around us. At a time when we face an unprecedented global crisis in mental health and well-being, the Contemplative Psychotherapy Program offers one of the most hopeful and impactful healing movements of our time.
