Soulful Sit-Downs has been a serious gift of peace and friendship in the craziness that is university life... All you’re asked to do is show up, and wonder, and critically think, and take what resonates and leave what doesn’t. Without a doubt every time I left I felt lighter, more encouraged and more excited to keep leading my life.

I got the opportunity to meet and listen to some amazing students and thought leaders who inspired me to live and walk in my own truth. And that is truly a gift.

Sean often carefully selected the topics on life’s big questions that I have been thinking about for a long time- like how to face hardship, the things we are grateful for, how should we spend everyday meaningfully and so on... Every time I came back from Soulful Sit-Downs, I felt I had changed a little bit in a positive way.

Soulful Sit-Downs was one thing that I looked forward to going to every week at Syracuse... As a freshman in college, I felt that the topics we discussed really helped me through my first two semesters. They were often uplifting and inspiring... I am incredibly lucky to have a group like this at school

Soulful Sit-Downs has been one of the best things I have ever experienced at Syracuse University. Every Thursday, I would attend and leave better than I had been prior to attending. It was at Soulful Sit-Downs where I had the opportunity to talk about life’s important issues with other intelligent students, and not only gain a new perspective, but also feel at peace with myself.

I can confidently say that being a part of Soulful Sit-downs was one of the most memorable things in my first year at Syracuse University!
