Meditation and Justice at Adelphi University

Campus Ministry Program

Meditation and Justice is a campus ministry initiative developed by the Center for Spiritual Imagination. Utilizing the findings of the Pew Research Center and Harvard University’s How We Gather study on the religiosity of young adults in America, as well as our own original research on spiritual formation, ritual, performance, and social engagement, Meditation and Justice seeks to cultivate a new method of spiritual engagement with young adults on the campus of Adelphi University.

Our methodology re-imagines the Anglican contemplative tradition and connects it to the spiritual needs of students. We focus specifically on those who don’t identify with any religious tradition. We curate campus-wide public events, cultivate spaces of contemplative practice and heartful conversation, offer one-on-one mentoring and spiritual direction and invite students to participate in service opportunities that allow them to live their newly discovered spiritual values in the context of “hearing the cry of the poor and cry of the earth” (Leonardo Boff).
