Bringing Soulful Practices
to Young People
Our Own Deep Wells
At OODW we teach through practice. In April of 2023, we selectively recruited and gathered 20 people to represent multiple diversities including age, gender, race, career trajectory, and religious tradition.
Our participants included four recent college graduates, six religious professionals, seven student life professionals, and three people who work adjacent to young adult populations.
Over the course of a 24-hour gathering, we engaged fifteen soulful practices from various faith traditions. What we learned is that people are hungry for spiritual practices that provide reliable hope in their own lives and in the lives of young adults they serve.
Bringing Soulful Practices to your community
We are currently working with colleges and universities to plan similar retreats and training to support student life professionals, chaplains, student leaders, faculty and staff. If you are interested in scheduling a conversation on how to host such a retreat, please contact Dori Baker: firstname.lastname@example.org
