All Sojourner's Tranquil Respite
Just wanted to let everyone know about something exciting that I'm helping to organize at NYU, in the graduate social work school I attend. It started out as an attempt to continue a little meditation group that ran last year, and its become an overwhelming success. We currently have at least three professeurs potentially interested, as well as a number of students which seems to double every week. |
We've started with meeting weekly in a discussion group, sharing our own spiritual journeys, much as we do here and also discussing the potential for interaction between spirituality and psychology, and what that means to us as students. Our hope is to also involve some sort of weekly offering, be it prayer or meditation, from our diverse backgrounds, and also have some guest speakers and trips, like done here. It looks like we'll even have the opportunity to help one professeur design a future course relating to these issues.
The group has been simply incredible so far, so I simply wanted to make people here aware of it. It would be great to have people visit even if they're not in the school (I'll need to check on guest policies in certain buildings, but if you want to come let me know). Additionally, I've been trying to send out a weekly digest of our discussions, something people here might be interested in. If you are, please let me know and I'll put you on the mailing list. Stay tuned for further updates, I'd love to see these two groups interact in meaningful ways.
