Now that you’ve been around the block, read a little here, and done a workshop there, it’s time to level-up and commit to an enduring process of integration. That’s why Miles created the two-year Contemplative Studies Program so you can go deeper than ever before, converting all you’ve learned into embodied wisdom primed for real-world application.
The Contemplative Studies Program (CSP) is a two-year training for personal development. We offer earnest students who have already begun a meditation or yoga asana practice, a deeper, more enduring immersion into the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism integrated with contemporary perspectives for neuroscience and psychotherapy.
Think of this as a modern day wisdom school for communal exploration, rigorous study, critical self-reflection, embodied practice and honest application of spiritual values into everyday life. The curriculum is based on Miles’ book Gradual Awakening supplemented by classical texts from Tibet’s gradual path (lam rim) literature as well as contemporary writings.
