Spiritual Wellness

Spiritual wellness represents one’s personal beliefs and values and involves having meaning, purpose, and a sense of balance and peace.

It includes recognizing our search for meaning and purpose in human existence, and developing an appreciation for life and the natural forces that exist in the universe.

Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL)

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL) nurtures the spiritual lives of all Wellesley students through diverse religious celebrations, compassionate pastoral care, dynamic multifaith programs, and contemplative mindfulness practices.

Inspired by Wellesley's historic belief that education is a spiritual as well as an intellectual journey, this program celebrates and affirms the diversity of religious and cultural experience of our students, both creating space for particular traditions and fostering communities for multifaith and intercultural exchange as students explore who they are and want to become for the sake of the world.
