In 2008 WCCL Foundation, Pune initiated the Study of the Mind project with the view to bring in Indian Mind Traditions in Therapy. Study of the mind also aims to bring in tools and techniques for sound mental health to working professionals and all people. The Study of the Mind series of Prajñādhara propagates the eastern philosophical mind traditions and makes these unique traditions and sciences accessible to people from all walks of life.

Starting December 2018, The Study of the Mind is happy to bring to Bengaluru a 5- month certificate course on Applied Buddhist Psychology and Ethics titled ‘Healing the Mind through knowing the Mind’.
