Spiritual Wellness

Dalhousie Multifaith Centre

The Dalhousie Multifaith Centre strives to explore the fundamental issues and concerns of the world from a religious perspective in a setting that encourages open and free discussion, values the raising of questions and doubts, and appreciates divergent histories, attitudes, options, and values. A complete education addresses the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.

The Centre is a non-threatening space where students, staff, and faculty can address the basic questions of meaning and purpose in their lives — no matter what their faith, philosophy, or doubt may be.

Quiet Rooms

Throughout the year, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Quiet Rooms are available to all students, staff, and faculty who want a quiet place for reflection, meditation, or prayer. There are Quiet Rooms at the Centre on Edward Street, in the Killam Library, in the Student Union Building, in LeMarchant Place, and on the Sexton Campus next to the gymnasium.
