Religious and Spiritual Opportunities on Campus
There are several opportunities each week for worship, religious observance, or other spiritual practices on-campus while school is in session during the fall and spring semesters.
Numen Lumen: A Thursday Inspiration
Thursdays, 9:50-10:20 a.m. – Numen Lumen, Online for Fall 2020
Numen Lumen is a time and space to take a break from the busyness of the week and refresh the spirit. It is not a “worship service,” but a time of reflection with sharing and musical performance provided by students, faculty, staff, or special guests. Videos are posted every Thursday on the Truitt Center Blog. This year’s theme is: “Bridging to Hope.”
Meditation and Yoga
These spiritual opportunities attract students from diverse traditions (religious and non-religious).
Mondays, 7:30 p.m. – Elon Yoga Club, Online for Fall 2020
Yoga Club is for students from all backgrounds and skill levels who are interested in doing Yoga together as a spiritual practice (multifaith, religious and non-religious welcome). Get connected with Elon Yoga Club on PhoenixCONNECT.
Thursdays, 4:30 p.m. – Meditation with Iron Tree Blooming
Learn and practice meditation in community with others. No experience necessary. The group is associated with Rinzai Zen, a tradition-based and not a faith-based practice. For Fall 2020, the group sits on the grass in front of Numen Lumen Pavilion, weather-permitting, and online when it rains. Get connected on PhoenixCONNECT.
