SpiritualiTEA: Connecting Through Diverse Spiritual Practices

We invite students from all spiritual backgrounds and identities to gather in community to explore different spiritual practices and reflect together over a cup of tea. Each night will be guided by a person or group who utilizes the practice as a regular part of their spiritual life. We hope the opportunity to learn about, experience and reflect on the practice will lead you to new insight into yourself, your life and your relationship with God, as you know and understand the Divine in your life.

All that is required is for you to be present! Bring your mug for tea and an open heart & mind.
