  • Abbey Chapel
  • Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary
  • The Labyrinth available for use at Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary
  • Eliot House, in particular:
    Eliot House Lounge, 2nd floor, you will find this room very welcoming and "homey".  Flags representing many faith groups hang from the ceiling and stuffed couches and chairs beckon you to take a seat and relax.  You may join a program or come to hang out when the lounge is not in use.
    the Hindu Prayer Room, 2nd floor
    the Muslim Prayer Room, 1st floor
    Wa-shin-An, Japanese Tea House and Garden, 3rd floor - Tea Garden and Tea House are open Monday through Friday from 1-5 pm.  You can have a tour, or just sit down, relax, or perhaps meditate.
