At MORSL, we offer a lounge and meditation space that welcomes all students, of any faith or religious denomination - and also for those with no religious affiliation at all! We are open for drop-ins Monday through Friday, from 10am - 4pm during the Fall and Winter terms. Feel free to stop by and use our space to mediate, relax, be inspired, learn, connect and recharge your batteries.
Our Interfaith Lounge
Located on the second floor of the Presbyterian College on University, our Interfaith Lounge features large windows, a cozy seating area, meditative colouring books, lots of plants and natural light.
This is a religion-and-spirituality positive space for dialogue on spiritual practice and well-being. While you are here, please take time to engage with others, share your favorite book (or browse our in-house library), or simply do some meditative colouring on your own or with a friend!
We hope you will use this space and resources to find meaning beyond academics and to form healthy life habits that invite spiritual well-being and inner peace. Get inspired by talking to the person next to you! Learn how others incorporate spiritual practice into their lives.
We uphold mutual respect and embrace our diversity. All are welcome – whether you come from a particular religious tradition or none at all, you have a place here with us!
You can also take advantage of free tea - but please bring your own mug or thermos! We are not equipped or staffed to properly sanitize cups.
The McGill Office of Religious and Spiritual Life also features an in-house interfaith library with books regarding world religions, coping with stress, practicing mindfulness, spirituality, and many more. Keep an eye out for the MORSL Reads series in our newsletters and on our website to learn about books from our staff-picks, or those recently added to our collection! (Note that these books are for use in our lounge only).
Our office offers a non-denominational prayer and meditation room, open during all lounge hours. Its resources include:
- A guided-meditation headphone station
- A light therapy station (first-come, first-serve basis) - Read instructions on how to use these lamps.
- Meditation cushions and ambient lighting to nurture focus and relaxation
- Chair with arm rests and space for wheelchair users
All are welcome, whether you are experienced in the practice of prayer and meditation, or just looking to try it out! We also offer Zen Practice and Quaker Meditation programs, which you can check out on our weekly meditation page.
Light Therapy Lamps
We have a full-spectrum lamp in the meditation room for use on site. Great for battling the winter blues! Read instructions on how to use these lamps.
