One of the my favorite things about Nazareth is it’s Center for Spirituality. So many different types of spirituality are fostered and practiced right here on campus and it’s amazing to see. CFS hosts different events like Sushi in the Sukkah to Gregorian Chanting in the Chapel, and the best part is that these programs are open to all!
Last semester I got involved with a group called the Alternative Spiritual Humanists, or ASH for short. ASH is a non-theist discussion group devoted to open spiritual dialogue. All humans with all perspectives are welcome to share their spiritual views in an accepting and peaceful environment. Although many of the students that attend these meetings are agnostic, atheist, or not even sure, it’s super awesome to have people that practice traditional faiths as well, as they bring something different to the conversation.
So far this year we’ve done some pretty fun stuff! We began by discussing our spiritual journeys and important people or events in ours lives that has helped shape our view on humanity.
We’ve also led a meditation session in the chapel.
We’ve screened an awesome documentary called I Am, in which, “filmmaker Tom Shadyac chats with philosophers and spiritual leaders about what ails the world and how to improve it.”
During Midterm week, we held a spiritual art therapy centered meeting.
Last week one of our super cool leaders led a discussion centered on the concepts of “good” and “evil” with a philosophical twist.
If you want to join us, we’ll be in the Meditation room of GAC at 9:15pm on Wednesdays!
