Private Spiritual Care Conversations: Maitripa College is offering opportunities for community care and student learning in the form of private, short, spiritual care conversations at this time. Our advanced students in the MDiv program need opportunities to practice developing skills for chaplaincy or similar service. We invite you to volunteer if you would be willing to have a conversation with them (through Zoom or by phone) and share something with which you are struggling, or questions or concerns you might have. How is integrating spiritual practice and values into your life going these days? If you are interested, please email Leigh at  [email protected] to schedule. Thank you for your generosity in considering sharing your experience, and we hope the conversation will be mutually beneficial, especially at this time.
