The Won Institute of Graduate Studies is an accredited graduate school offering professional training at a Master’s Degree level in Acupuncture Studies, Applied Meditation Studies and Won Buddhist Studies. The Won Institute is located in Glenside, Pennsylvania, a charming suburban community of Philadelphia.
At the Won Institute, personal development is a key component of all our programs. Every program includes non-denominational sitting and moving meditation. This intensive focus on meditation helps create compassionate, competent meditation teachers and gives acupuncturists a profound tool in treating patients. More fundamentally, students develop a deep sense of awareness by becoming more perceptive to the needs of others. Personal development through meditation allows one to become an attentive practitioner and teacher. This philosophy is really the heart of the Institute. Meditation is integrated throughout the curriculum and blended into all of our classes.
We pride ourselves on our diverse faculty, many of whom are also professional practitioners, business owners and meditation practitioners. This gives them a vast amount of knowledge to share with students. Small class sizes allow for a personalized learning environment where faculty and students have the chance to connect on a personal level.
Aside from the Master’s degree and certificate programs, we also have a fully staffed faculty and student acupuncture clinic that sees patients throughout the week, a well-established library and a variety of events including guest speakers, tai chi and yoga classes and CE events for therapists and acupuncturists. All of this truly makes the Won Institute a one of a kind learning environment and a great place to go to school.
