Drop-In Drops

This fun active meditation is a great place to share your energy with another. Using polymer clay, you can create a small 'drop' that Center staff will bake and make available to be shared with other visitors to the space.  Place your gratitude, worry, or just plain nervous energy into a tangible form, and then allow it to absorb a new meaning for someone else.

Drop in anytime and create a water drop of your own.

Spiritual Library

As a place for knowledge and reference, there exists a growing collection of books in the Center for Spiritual and Religious Life. You can explore our house library to find resources for spiritual exploration and you’ll come across introductions, poetry, sacred texts (the non-electronic kind), novels, spiritual guidance, and much more.  There is even a game or two in and among the bookshelves!  Long live the written word and the special places it gives humans access to.

Color and Spirit

There are a few books you will find to put your colorful expressions in a safe place.  Coloring for adults is a visit to a simple time and this active meditation allows the person coloring to let thoughts, emotions, grief, happiness, fear, joy or uninhibited assessments occur.  Color in our books, or bring your own.  Colored pencils provided.
