Experiential Learning

Most of us enjoy learning through some kind of hands-on activity. Experiential learning is learning by doing, in a mindful, intentional and reflective manner. When it comes to somewhat abstract topics like religion and spirituality, experiential learning offers a complementary approach to understanding the philosophical aspects. Whether you're looking to learn more about a faith tradition or try out a spiritual practice, MORSL's programming includes classes, field trips and workshops based on experiential learning practices. Registration for our events is open to students who pay the Student Services fee, and is offered at no charge.
