About Us

Nalanda Institute is a leading provider of educational programs that help people integrate contemplative well-being, cutting-edge neuropsychology and social equity into professional practice and contemporary life. We were founded in 2007 as a 501(c)3 non-profit and are based in New York City with program hubs in San Francisco, Toronto, and Zaragoza, Spain as well as a virtual presence in Latin America.

Our mission is to train leaders in rigorous contemplative science and practice, informed by current neuropsychology and deep social equity work, to tame self-limiting survival biases and emotions, and to embody and teach prosocial ways of being that accelerate the development of personal thriving, interpersonal compassion, organizational stewardship and collective liberation.

In collaboration with a world-class faculty and community-based organizations, we deliver best-in-class training programs to professionals in the healthcare, behavioral health, wellness, social services, education, and business sectors to enable a radically different way of being, living and engaging with others.  Over the years, we have offered in-person and digital programs (ranging from short workshops to 9-months in duration) integrating contemplative science with psychotherapy, medical research & clinical interventions, business & management, meditation, K-12 education, and mind-body movement.  

While the Institute is an established thought-leader in its field with a number of income-generating programs alongside continualphilanthropic projects, it is also an early-stage organization.  We are transitioning in the next year to a stage of rapid growth and professionalization by pursuing opportunities to expand our digital platform, to innovate program offerings, and to establish new partnerships with stakeholders across the industry.  Additionally, we plan to launch two new initiatives around social equity and advanced clinical research.  To achieve our vision, we need dedicated people who are excited by the chance to build a growing organization aimed at enabling thriving life and a vibrant society.
