Spiritual Wellness Week February 23-29, 2020

What Is Spiritual Wellness Week?

Join us for the second annual Spiritual Wellness Week, February 23-29, 2020, hosted by the University of Illinois Religious Workers Association and the Illinois Interfaith Planning Committee. Spiritual Wellness Week is designed to explore the many different conceptions of spiritual wellness from various faith and philosophical perspectives. 

Based on a concept from Oregon State University, Spiritual Wellness Week invites the campus community to consider what spiritual wellness means to us, and the ways we work towards our own spiritual wellness. This week includes:
