Meditation has become the cornerstone of the faith of many Unitarian-Universalists, whether their belief is agnostic, theist, or atheist, and whether their orientation is Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Islamic, or other. Many have found that their own personal mediation experience has been enhanced by the presence and support of others in group mediation. The Meditation/Buddhist Sangha meets regularly at the Hillcrest campus.
