Spiritual Practices

At the heart of the world’s religious and spiritual traditions are meditative and contemplative practices. Experience and explore them through The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life’s events and non-credit classes. These programs welcome all students and staff, whether or not they are affiliated with any faith tradition.


CHRISTIAN SPIRITUAL PRACTICES – a non-credit course for all USC students and staff – offered on Zoom for Fall Semester 2020: Wednesdays, 5-6 pm PST, starting 9/3. We’ll be engaging in meditative and contemplative practices of Christianity that date back to the time of Jesus – practices that emerged from different branches of the faith and are still followed today. See these introductory VIDEOS to get a taste. For information and to register, contact the class instructor, Rev. Jim Burklo, Sr Associate Dean, Office of Religious and Spiritual Life – burklo@usc.edu.
