Who We Are
Global Spiritual Life
At Global Spiritual Life (GSL), we offer programming and resources for those who seek to deepen their spirituality at NYU. From our daily meditations and yoga sessions to our Faith Zones and Beloved Community workshops, we are here to help members of the NYU community.
- Practice | GSL supports religious, spiritual, and mindful practices.
- Curiosity | Our center encourages a sense of curiosity, essential for the symbiotic relationship between personal exploration and academic pursuit.
- Service | We give of ourselves in a way that is transformative and in service of our own and others’ liberation.
Global Spiritual Life offers religious, spiritual, and secular communities empowering tools for self- and community-care, bridge-building, and resilience. We provide opportunities for members of the NYU community to strengthen their sense of belonging, purpose, transcendence, and capacity for storytelling in order to cultivate a Beloved Community.
New York University exemplifies the core principles of Beloved Community in action, modeling spiritual pluralism, holistic wellbeing, and religiously literate engagement with the world.
