Religious Life Leaders Explore Roots of Spiritual Practice


Copied URL to clipboard

Campus Religious Life leaders will discuss the deep roots of contemporary spiritual practices in a series of talks in February. The approach of the series is to promote appreciation of spiritual practices of various faith traditions, instead of appropriation of those practices.

Each talk will take place on a Thursday between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. in the Chaplin Family Study Room in the Brodhead Center. See below for a listing of topics, dates, and presenters.

Preregistration is encouraged. Register here.
