The Gathering Space for Spiritual Well-Being (The Gathering Space)

The Center for Well-Being, Room 103 | 410-455-6795

Opening shortly after The Mosaic in 2006 and formerly named the Interfaith Center, the Gathering Space for Spiritual Well-Being serves as a spiritually-centered space where students and UMBC community members can gather at the intersection of religion, faith, spirituality, and other lived experiences. The Gathering Space prioritizes individual religious practice, opportunities to explore holistic well-being connected to religion and spirituality, and creating spaces to engage across difference, by centering the importance of interfaith work and dialogue. Within the Gathering Space, three core themes are emphasized for all who engage with this space: radical love & belonging, spiritual well-being, and energetic pluralism.

The Gathering Space for Spiritual Well-Being is composed of one main reservable space, office space for spiritual advising, two foot washing rooms, a kitchenette and lounge area, and is connected to other conference rooms in the Center for Well-Being. This space is used by students, staff, faculty, and Religious Council members from all religious and spiritual backgrounds to meet, worship, discuss, and celebrate their individual and/or collective faiths and philosophical worldviews. This space was created by UMBC community members who saw the need to honor religious and spiritual diversity as a core part of holistic well-being and success.
