Fellowship Opportunities

It is important, from time to time, to rest, relax, and have some fun. All are welcome to join us for these fellowship events.

 

MEALS

Give yourself a chance to relax and recharge at the midpoint of the semester by learning different meditation techniques from around the globe and a variety of faith traditions. Guided meditation, embodied meditation, and artistic meditation are just some of the practices we will explore together. Lunch is provided. To register, contact Jessica Chicka, jchicka@bu.edu.

PLANTING IN THE SPIRIT

Tuesday, April 18 ~ 3:00 p.m.

Marsh Plaza

Create Space will host a green twist on our Painting in the Spirit activity – but instead of going home with a painting you’ve created, take home your own tiny terrarium! A variety of stones, recycled containers, and succulent plants can construct easy-to-care for and unobtrusive decorative planters, perfect for bringing some greenery into small spaces. (Contact: Jessica Chicka, jchicka@bu.edu).

During the fury of exams and final projects, take a moment to breathe and get balanced in Marsh Chapel.

All of it is free and Boston University international students and friends are welcome to stop by to take a break and de-stress. (Contact: Jessica Chicka, jchicka@bu.edu)
