Kripalu Institute for Integrated Leadership in Lennox, MA.

The Institute for Integrated Leadership’s new Semester Intensive is an immersion program specifically designed for 18- to 25-year-olds. Today, more than ever, the world needs the perspective, power, and passion of young adults who can influence change and make a significant, positive impact in our increasingly complex world.

We are looking for 36 extraordinary young adults to kick off our inaugural semester in Fall 2006. We have more than 100 inquiries to date and we want to cast the widest net possible in order to enroll a group of students who can make the most of this unique opportunity.

As they engage in this highly experiential curriculum, participants will delve into the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical aspects of personal and professional development through courses in these five areas:

  1. Self-Study and Contemplative Traditions
  2. Meaningful Work
  3. Healthy Living
  4. Effective Communication
  5. Financial Consciousness

Similar to other college-level programs, the Semester Intensive is tuition-based. Full and partial financial assistance is available, and we encourage students of all financial backgrounds to apply.
