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 are enrolled in the program and will experience these services over the next few years.

It is our hope that Spirited Life will prove beneficial, enabling other United Methodist conferences and other churches and faith communities to adopt it with confidence.
