The Office of Spiritual Life
Recognizing the importance of a healthy and diverse spiritual life on campus, the Office of Spiritual Life offers programs and events to make you feel welcome at UNT, no matter what your beliefs are. We also can connect you to a variety of existing resources.
The Office of Spiritual Life seeks to promote the spiritual development of our students by encouraging thoughtful dialogue, critical thinking, personal reflection, and interfaith awareness. We aim to create a safe and inclusive environment for all students as they reflect on and engage with their beliefs, values, purpose and ways of making meaning.
That all students, regardless of their respective worldviews and spiritual backgrounds, are inspired to better understand their own beliefs and values, as well as those of their peers, in pursuit of building a community of thoughtful and informed leaders, both on campus and beyond. Ultimately, we want the Office of Spiritual Life to become the primary destination for students looking to explore, evaluate, and engage with their own personal sense of spirituality.
The Office of Spiritual Life seeks to provide students with opportunities to improve their spiritual and/or religious literacy and opportunities for interfaith engagement.
Spiritual Life Meditation
Learn about different meditation techniques and engage in group meditation as you cultivate this valuable practice! The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 5th, at 5:30 PM in Wooten Hall, room 315,
Residence Hall Interfaith Dialogues
Let's talk about "Life's Big Questions"! These dialogues (like all of our programs and events) are open to all students, and you are invited to share your worldview as we explore belief, nonbelief, and how we make meaning of the world around us.
The first Interfaith Dialogue of the semester will take place in the Blagg Room in Kerr Hall on Tuesday, September 18th at 7pm. All students are welcome and invited to share their perspectives!
First meeting of the Fall 2018 semester!
Come out to Plot 2 in the UNT Community Garden on Wednesday, September 5th, at noon (12pm) for the first Spiritual Life Gardening meeting of the semester! This is a great opportunity for newcomers to get familiar with the garden, learn about the Community Garden guidelines, and generally how to get involved with Spiritual Life Gardening. (In the event of inclement weather, the Sep. 5th meeting will take place in Sage Hall, room 355.)
Why garden with the Office of Spiritual Life?
Learn about gardening, spend time outside, get your hands in the dirt, and grow food to donate to our local community! Students will work together to learn about gardening and community service as we work to grow fresh produce for the UNT Food Pantry.
OK, so how do I get involved?
All you need to do is have at least one hour to spend in the garden each week - whether that's 15-20 minutes for a few days a week between classes, or an hour on a Saturday - and you can sign up to participate. You can sign up by emailing email@example.com, join us for a group meeting (check back soon for our summer schedule),
*In the event of inclement weather, locations for the meetings will be posted to the OSL webpage and social media.
