Self-Directed Practice

As we balance service access and safety for all during the pandemic, we are operating our drop-in centre space with reduced room capacity this term. For self-directed services such as prayer and meditation, no appointment is required, but you must sign in and follow all public health measures in effect on campus. To speak with a staff member for personalized consultations (virtual or in-person), please make an appointment via our bookings page. Despite the situation, our community is still very active! To find out what's happening this week, please go to our home page and scroll down to the week's event listing and see also our partner programming webpage for online spiritual practice links.

Spiritual practice can look very different for different people- just another example of how we are all unique! MORSL provides space and resources for students to pursue, begin or experiment with self-directed activities such as prayer, meditation, mindful colouring, contemplative reading and journaling. Come to our drop-in centre to learn more about how you can get started or nurture your spiritual practice at your own pace!



Meditation and Prayer Space

A quiet room in our drop-in centre provides a non-denominational prayer and meditation space available during our opening hours. Its resources include:

  • A guided-meditation headphone station
  • A light therapy station (first-come, first-serve basis) - Read instructions on how to use these lamps.
  • Meditation cushions and ambient lighting to aid with focus and relaxation
  • Soft carpet for kneeling
  • Zazen-style meditation benches
  • Chair with arm rests and space for wheelchair users
  • Inspirational quotes and reflections to guide meditation
  • A short guide to meditation in a variety of traditions
  • Colouring materials and "make your own mantra" supplies

All are welcome, whether you are experienced in the practice of prayer and meditation, or just looking to try it out! No appointment necessary, and no time limit on your practice. We also offer classes and group meditation programs, which you can check out on our weekly meditation page
