UCM programs that are happening this week:

"Living from the Spiritual Heart", Wednesday April 16, 12:30 - 1:30  p.m.
Stamp Student Union, Thurgood Marshall Room 2113



The program is part of UMD's "Stress Less Week."


The UMD Office of Interfaith Programs and Spiritual Diversity and United Campus Ministry are co-sponsors.


Program Description:

“This one hour session offers an opportunity to learn about and experience a spiritual practice of connecting and listening to your spiritual heart.  Through short, gentle, guided meditations, one can access the spiritual heart, feeling stillness and peace.  This is a simple and easy way to connect with the Divine within and to attend to one’s inner wisdom and guidance.  It is open to all seekers of any religious tradition who may want to develop or deepen a spiritual or meditation practice and is congruent with the current scientific research on the heart.  This heart meditation nurtures qualities of the heart, such as love, peace, gratitude, authenticity and compassion.


In this session, we will practice this meditation in a few different ways and then follow each practice with sharing that is respectful and gentle.  Participants can then choose whether to incorporate this practice in their lives and/or form a practice group.”


Our program leader will be Patience Robbins, a seasoned Spiritual Director and Associate Staff person at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation in Washington, DC http://www.shalem.org/

The decisions college students make today often impact the rest of their lives.


Would you like to support college students as they ask “What will I do with my life?”; deal with stress, anxiety, the intense pressure to succeed; and struggle with choices concerning personal ethics, relationships, and what role to play in regards to social justice and global responsibility?


Would you like to make a difference in the lives of young people?


The United Campus Ministry (UCM) at the University of Maryland provides quality spiritual support and programs for young adults during critical years.  Our on-campus Christian chaplaincy offers a safe environment where students from diverse backgrounds can come together to honestly question, grow and live out their faith.  UCM extends a warm welcome to young people, and travels with them through all the twists, turns and detours of their spiritual journeys.


The UCM also has an important role on the University of Maryland campus, representing the spiritual dimension of life.  Vital campus partnerships have included: The Office of the Vice-President for Student Affairs; the Department of Resident Life; the Counseling Center; the Health Center; the School of Music; the Suicide Awareness Health Education Training Advisory Board; the Wellness Initiative; the Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Prevention Committee; Campus Chaplaincies, Interfaith working group, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, (Interfaith/Secular Dialogue) Words of Engagement Dialogue Program.


United Campus Ministry is a 501(c) 3 organization supported by the

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the United Church of Christ, and the

Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), individuals and local churches.


An investment in campus ministry is an investment in the present and future leadership of the church and the world.
