I am interested in looking at religions in the area. I have been thinking a lot about my own spirituality for a while and I would be interested in exploring that more seriously. My plan would be to do some research ahead of time about the different religions in the area and doing some background research about them, then once I got to the Linden Center, I could look more deeply into how the people in Xizhou have personalized their worship. I know that even in one religion, everyone goes about it differently.
The point of the project for me was so that I could have a chance to see the role that spirituality plays in the lives of people from cultures other than my own, and then seeing if that somehow affects my view of my own spirituality. This journey will not end when the Microcampus trip does.
This project was never about pleasing an audience. The audience is myself so that I can reflect and see where I go from what I have learned.
Hey! I'm Cass! I love exploring and I am loving this amazing adventure! I am so excited to continue diving into the mysteries of spirituality and discovering the beautiful things that the world has to offer!
