“Teaching under the aegis of Nalanda Institute has allowed me as a teacher to implement ‘best practices’ from a wide range of disciplines, ranging from social work and neuroscience research to traditional, embodied mindfulness and compassion practices.”
— Susanna Nicholson, Meditation faculty


I feel very honored to be a part of the Nalanda Institute Lunchtime Meditation group. I appreciate the supportive environment that is created by the sangha and sharing the deepening of practice and self-reflection.
— Tazuko Shibusawa, Meditation faculty
