Spiritual Life

We come together as Buddhists, Catholics, Humanists, [add your tradition here], in between, none, or all. 

Consonant with the great intellectual strengths of the University of Chicago, we approach with rigor questions about what it means to live in an interreligious era and to understand the spiritual and the philosophical as integrative for human life and endeavor.
