Study Retreat: “Building Common Ground”

Saturday, October 14, 2017

Location: On-campus – Marsh Chapel

Cost: FREE

Register HERE!

Midterms are upon us!  Would you like encouragement and moments of reflection as you study? Would you benefit from food, focus, and fellowship?  Then come with friends to incorporate meditation and study in our Study Retreat with Howard Thurman!

The day includes well rounded meals, meditation moments that include some accountability for your accomplishments, and over 10 hours of study time. Sunday evening includes an optional movie study break.

No prior experience at Marsh Chapel needed!  Just bring your loaded backpack, laptop, and open mind.

Our meals and meditation times will all be in Robinson Chapel, located downstairs in Marsh Chapel. You can study in comfortable rooms at Marsh, or nearby campus libraries. Participants in our Study Retreats have discovered that their study is not only relaxed and productive, but the day is fun and insightful. Questions? Please do not hesitate to contact Br. Larry Whitney, University Chaplain for Community Life, at lwhitney@bu.edu.

Please register by Thursday, October 12, so that we can order enough food.
