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.


Spiritual Life Open House & Lunch:
Tuesday September 27
11:30 am–1:30 pm

From Atheist to Zoroastrian, our office serves everyone! Drop in to pick up information, learn about the resources available to you through Spiritual Life, meet our staff and student leaders of religious and spiritual groups on campus and check out our offerings and space, including a meditation room! 

Breathing Room:
Thursdays | 3 pm–5 pm

Inhale. Exhale. Repeat. Take a deep breath during a busy week, day, or quarter. Relax on the couches, talk with a friend, color a mandala, enjoy the quiet of the meditation space, or hang out with Spiritual Life staff—every breath is yours. Light refreshments available, all are welcome. 

Meet People
