Center for Spiritual Life
The Center for Spiritual Life at Emerson College is an inclusive, multifaith hub for religious and spiritual programming, support, and education for the Emerson community. Our services and goals include:
- Supporting the role of religion and spirituality within the context of higher education and the Emerson community.
- Offering opportunities for religious and spiritual practice, learning, dialogue, service, and holiday observance.
- Programing across departments and disciplines to foster religious literacy and connection on campus.
- Providing one on one spiritual counseling to help Emerson community members cope, make meaning, and thrive amidst struggle and loss, spiritual exploration, and life milestones.
- Bearing witness to injustice and oppression, and modeling good stewardship of the earth.
- Advocating for the needs of underrepresented groups.
We encourage people of all faiths, as well as secularists, humanists, and atheists, to take part in the activities of our Center for Spiritual Life (CSL). Established groups include the Jewish group Hillel, the Catholic Newman Club, and the ecumenical Emerson Christian Fellowship, with groups and events also emerging around mindfulness meditation, Buddhism, interfaith dialogue, and social justice.
