Recreation & Wellness has created a monthly Wellness Speaker Series to take a dive into wellness beyond the basics. Come explore wellness topics with a lens of intersectionality, health equity and diversity. Our hope is to create a space for students to learn from a wide array of speakers with diverse lived-experiences in well-being; opening eyes and minds to experiences beyond their own.

November Speaker: Kaufman Interfaith Institute

  • In promoting interfaith understanding and mutual respect, the Kaufman Interfaith Institute offers a broad range of programming (over 200 events/initiatives each year) that seeks to create a more inclusive and equitable West Michigan Community for persons of diverse cultural and religious/secular/spiritual identities.

    The spirit of the Kaufman Interfaith Institute is represented in the cooperative programs held in the community to enlighten, inform, and promote inclusivity. These events bring together diverse voices and worldview traditions to find common ground, foster interfaith cooperation, and elevate individual experiences and stories.

    Whether it is working with others in the community to host a healthy discussion about polarizing issues or organizing celebrations that welcomes all and encourages learning through differences, the institute has found great success carrying out its mission through these community collaborations.

Wellness Beyond Religion: When it comes to wellness, we're no strangers to things like yoga, meditation, breath exercise, and fasting. Yet, many of these now common techniques and disciplines find their original home in the rich cultural and traditions of specific communities. This workshop will offer a discussion of such wellness practices and the spiritual traditions out of which they grew.

*Please register so we can be sure to have enough space for seating in the room or, so we can send you a Zoom link before the event.
