As we navigate these very unique times, we invite you to connect with the Maitripa College community locally, nationally, and around the world, for comfort, hope, and inspiration. Now more than ever, it’s the time to make your practice your life. PLEASE NOTE: Update on Status of Spring 2021 Term. Classes continue as planned this spring at Maitripa College. In accordance with local guidelines, classes are being held online, with optional, periodic, onsite meetings incorporating rigorous social distancing to be held at the instructor’s discretion if state and local regulations permit. Other than legal mandates, the safety and comfort of our faculty and students is the primary factor driving this decision. All classes will have remote-only options for registered students in Oregon.

Private Spiritual Care Conversations: Private Spiritual Care Conversations: Maitripa College is offering opportunities for community care and student learning in the form of private, short, spiritual care conversations. Our advanced students in the MDiv and MA degree programs 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule. Thank you for your generosity in considering sharing your experience, and we hope the conversation will be mutually beneficial, especially in these times.
