BYO Candle Light

Each week IC Soul will be facilitated by a different IC staff, faculty, or student. Together, we'll light a candle, share in silence, music, and text, reflect in small groups, and receive a blessing. This week Lia Muñoz Assistant Director of New Student & Transition Programs, First-Gen Center is leading our reflection on theme of grief and lament. Lia has chosen a short piece by Lang Leave and the song, "The Otherside of Paradise."

IC Soul invites each participant virtually to enrich and explore their own spiritual life, evoking that which is beyond ourselves but to which we are connected by essence and aspiration. We don't seek uniformity of belief or practice, and we draw inspiration from many traditions.
