Students of any or no religious affiliation are welcome to this afternoon of experiential learning about spiritual practices across religious traditions. Practices will include Muslim ritual washing, Buddhist loving-kindness meditation, Jewish ethics and Taoist tai chi. Participants are welcome to engage in these guided practices and conversations to the extent they are comfortable. Our closing dialogue will explore the place of spiritual and well-being practices in our daily lives toward continuing or starting them.
This program is led by Amherst’s Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist advisors, along with our tai chi instructor and director of religious and spiritual life.
