      Reflect | Resist | Rejuvenate

      The Center for Religious and Spiritual Life is an interreligious, nondenominational body that promotes spiritual flourishing for all students, religious and nonreligious alike. Our areas of focus are ethical reflection, social and racial justice and civic engagement, mindfulness and contemplative practice, and community building based in dialogue and respect. We provide resources grounded in different faith and wisdom traditions, and strive to raise religious literacy and promote interfaith engagement toward a more inclusive, just and engaged citizenry. In the midst of a vibrant academic community, we encourage explorations of mystery, faith, ritual and that which we experience as holy.

      We invite you to reflect, resist, rejuvenate with us, and remember—whoever you are, wherever you have been and wherever you are going, you are welcome here.

      Our Mission

      The Smith Center for Religious & Spiritual Life offers guidance and pastoral care through a lens of mutuality and exploration, and we collaborate to respond with grace and courage to the events that threaten to disrupt our lives. We are invested in what Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King and others before him called the “beloved community,” a dynamic vision in which the worth, dignity and promise of each human is honored and in which we strive to live as stewards of the earth and its creatures.

      Befriending Yourself and the Practice of Mindfulness

      • 2:15pm, Seelye Lawn
      • This 45-minute program is an introduction to the practice of mindfulness. We will explore mindfulness through reflection and practice around the theme of making friends with ourselves, a teaching that comes from Tibetan Buddhist Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. What does it mean to make friends with ourselves? How do we do this, beyond a superficial niceness, beyond "self care"? Come to this session to find out - you might just benefit from the stress-reducing effects of self-acceptance. Session led by Anna Ostow, Center for Religious and Spiritual Life.

      Toward Racial Justice at Smith - A Living Document for Community Comment

      Smith College has embarked on the first phase of an emerging strategic plan for racial justice. The proposed recommendations have been informed by student, staff and faculty contributions to Inclusion in Action work, consideration of student and alumnae/i demands, and discussions with the Inclusion Council and President’s Cabinet.

      In this time of urgent racial crisis, we invite comment, critique and refinement of this emerging plan.
