The student-led Meditation Group meets twice a week for group meditation. For details of time and location, contact Chaplain Rob Spach at rospach@davidson.edu.  Lingle Chapel of the Davidson College Presbyterian Church offers a peaceful environment that all members of the college community may use for prayer and meditation.
