The second pillar of SINI’s Building Bridges of Goodness relates to formal study programs held either in residence at the Institute or online. Our main courses of study are primarily language programs. We offer a unique residential and intensive English for Dharma Purposes program for monastics both in residence and now also online. In 2020, SINI’s programs moved primarily online and are supported by a variety of innovative systems for learning communication.

In addition, we offer a Tibetan immersion (online and residential), and periodically Sanskrit and Pali intensives. Supplementing these rigorous language studies programs, SINI offers Kum Nye (a subtle Tibetan healing and yoga system) practice for residential monastics and students.
