Buddhist Psychology Course


As part of our commitment to well-being, we recognize the relevance and value of our rich and ancient academic discipline and wisdom. And it has been our endeavor to bring back this Indian Wisdom which can help promote our mental health and provide us with a direction in which we can grow and benefit.

We have been blessed with incredible teachers including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo and Ven. Geshe Dorji Damdul, along with Asha Pillai Balsara and the WCCL Foundation.

We have been offering a 6month, part time course in Applied Buddhist Psychology in Mumbai, as ‘The Bodhi Tree’ since 2017, and in Chennai, as ‘Healing the Mind’ since 2018 (in partnership with BALM)
