Sacred PNW: Explore Spirituality, Meditation & Community in Portland

Portland is home to a rich diversity of spiritual expressions, as is your new L&C community! Did you know there is no single dominant religion in the Northwest? You’ll spend the week connecting with other new students as you get to know Portland’s sacred spaces through immersion in urban forests, trips to local spiritual communities, collective conversations, and meditative practice. You’ll stay on campus during this “trip,” and learn about spiritual life, practice, and community at L&C. Read the detailed trip description to learn more (coming soon)
