The Multifaith Living Community offers a program of small groups for its residents. These facilitated groups of 5-8 people meet throughout the week, guided by a community member or student leader. Students select the group based on the availability of their schedules. All residents are expected to attend a small group each quarter.
The purpose of small groups is to explore the heights of the “big questions” of life while integrating new awareness into the lived experiences of students. They are an opportunity to grow in self-realization while developing the capacity to engage difference, by providing an environment of safety as existing paradigms and beliefs are critically examined. Small groups offer opportunities for students to express themselves through their unique voices while learning how to participate in constructive dialogue. They facilitate a focused community of accountability where students are not only heard, but learn how to truly show up for each other with full attention and care.
