Mission Statement

At Juniper we believe in the potential of the mind. We believe that each of us can learn to counter the stresses of life with calm, balance, compassion, and clarity, and that these qualities can unlock our capacity to become a joyful, positive force in the world.

Description

Juniper is the extension of a long Indo-Tibetan Buddhist lineage, illuminating its insights and practices in modern life. It is a body of insight, paired with a collection of methods for disciplining and training the mind. It has a philosophical sophistication that makes it well suited to modern life--it values reason and critical inquiry, is not beholden to dogma, and allows us to embrace technology and science without being defined by them. Its practices are not about religion, worship, or following rules. Rather, they are a means to liberate our capacity for serenity, love, joy, and insight, to give expression to who we are, and to unlock our capacity to become a strong, positive force in the world.
