This new University staff initiative is being launched during national Interfaith Week, with the support of Chaplaincy and the Equality and Diversity team.
The aim is to introduce a regular opportunity for University staff to engage in open-minded, non-dogmatic, non-proselytising discussion of philosophies of life, value, and that vague concept: ‘spirituality’.
This is particularly – but not exclusively – aimed at individuals of non-Abrahamic faith groups or those of no specific faith.
You are cordially invited to come along to either just listen or join in the discussion.
The discussion topic for this first meeting is: can anyone be without some beliefs about human nature and the meaning of human life?
Light refreshments (tea, coffee, juice and biscuits) will be provided. If you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org it will better help the team predict numbers.
The event will be taking place in the Byre Studio within the Byre theatre.
It is being hosted by the following members of the Chaplaincy Team:
Sam Pehrson (Buddhist), Sandy Edwards (Humanist), Kitty Macintyre (Pagan), Leslie Stevenson (Quaker), and from the Equality and Diversity team: Sukhi Bains (Das Dharam, Hinduism and Sikhism practice) with the support of Donald MacEwan (University Chaplain).
