Spirited Life

Spirited Life is a multi-year health and wellness program and behavioral health study offered by the Duke Clergy Health Initiative.

Funded by The Duke Endowment, and cast within a framework of Wesleyan theology and spirituality, Spirited Life provides clergy with the tools they need to manage stress; learn to care for their bodies in a healthy, mindful way; and find spiritual renewal.

Some 1,150 clergy in the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences of the United Methodist Church participated in Spirited Life over the past four years.

It is our hope that the outcomes of the Spirited Life program will enable other United Methodist conferences and other churches and faith communities to develop similar programs with confidence.
