Salvatore (Sal) Tufano: Benefits of a Contemplative Community

, , Leave a comment


You learn as much from the community here as you learn from professors here. You know we are doing a lot of discussion type classes it’s not like we’re sitting in a big classroom, 20-30 people with the professor up front just lecturing at us. Most of the classes we’re sitting in a small circle and as such it encourages a lot of group dialogue so you know Buddhist teach that there are three ways to learn something hearing, meditating, contemplating, and the program at Naropa, because it’s a more personal program, because the classes you know you might be in a class with eight to ten people sitting in a circle with your professor it really encourages that much more dialogue between students not just in the class but even outside of the classroom so it’s a big part of the learning experience
