Kirat randhawa


A b o u t M e

Kirat is currently a student at Columbia University studying the role of contemplative training within the field of psychology and how associated practices can be used as instruments for individual and societal transformation. From completing research at The Contemplative Sciences Center at The University of Virginia to working with underserved communities across New York City, she works to identify and deconstruct the multilayered conditioning that prohibits human flourishing. Kirat aims to integrate Buddhist philosophy into a traditional psychotherapeutic framework to support clients on their path toward self-actualization.
