  • Become “Cross Fit”: A Workshop on Prayer by Rev. Ryan Duns, S.J. | AMU, Room 163
    Many of us desire to deepen our spiritual lives but struggle to find the time to do so. In this one-hour session, Father Ryan Duns will introduce and then guide attendees through two different prayer experiences: the daily examen and contemplative prayer. Integrating these spiritual exercises into your daily life may not give you “beach body” but can, we believe, help you to become “Cross Fit!”

This map takes present-day locations to illustrate their Indigenous roots, as well as their continued shaping by Milwaukee’s Indigenous community today. While in the formative stages, students and Dr. Rindfleisch, have identified 136 spaces and places in Milwaukee to be “Indigenized” and in multifaceted, multi-medium ways.
