Spiritual Life

Whether you belong to an established religion or faith tradition or are just beginning to explore what spirituality might mean for you, Spiritual Life at Hampshire will help support and inspire you in your journey.

Who We Are

Our spiritual advisors work closely with students, staff, and faculty, offering confidential spiritual counseling and support. We help connect you to the resources you seek, on and off campus.

What We Do

Here at Hampshire, we believe that spiritual well-being is a key component of holistic wellness, and integrally connected to social justice. Our Spiritual Life office strives to offer programs that enable our students to explore these connections while engaging our community in vital questions of meaning, purpose, and how we live in the world.

This involves actively promoting a balance of mind, body, and spirit through student and staff-led meditation and mindfulness programs and collaborations with our Wellness Center and other offices on campus. We also work hard to build bridges across differences, recognizing and enhancing the rich diversity of our community through the celebration of many spiritual traditions and the facilitation of vibrant multifaith dialogues.
