Ananda College of Living Wisdom offers a very special approach to learning, beginning with our motto “Higher Education for Higher Consciousness”. This focus on higher consciousness permeates the classes you will attend, the environment you will live in, the friendships you will form, and even the meals you will eat. For students who value this kind of growth, the college offers the fulfillment of a dream that may have seemed unachievable in contemporary society.
Our purpose is to extend the scope of modern education beyond the common preoccupation with facts and a knowledge of external conditions. By incorporating the term Living Wisdom in our name, we commit ourselves to cultivating the inner sense of knowing that is at the core of all true spiritual traditions. In becoming a student at ACLW, you will enter an environment created to help you explore and deepen your own experience of inner truth. This foundation of inner truth and self-knowing provides the basis for constructing a life that can bring lasting fulfillment and meaning.
