Welcome to Prajna Institute.

We are a 501 C3 recognized nonprofit with the mission of improving people’s lives through educational and spiritual resources. We offer mindfulness-based workshops for individuals to develop a better understanding of themselves so they can overcome difficulty.

Prajñā (Sanskrit) or paññā (Pāli), is a Buddhist term often translated as “wisdom”, “intelligence”, or “understanding”. It is described in Buddhist commentaries as the understanding of the true nature of phenomena.  The way things are, if you will.  We provide teachings that help people develop wisdom and improve their lives.

We believe one’s spiritual journey is personal.  We do not subscribe to any one particular doctrine. We are, however, rooted in the Theravada Buddhist tradition. We understand that it is up to the individual to embrace teachings that truly resonate with them.  We offer a place where we hope, the offerings ignite something within to better help one have a greater understanding of themselves and help them grow.

We aim to be:

  • Inclusive
  • Safe
  • Encouraging
  • Thought provoking
  • Healing
  • Joyful
  • Loving

In some ways we look at it as an opensource spiritual platform.  We are fortunate to have teachers who contribute their gift to others.
