Second Breath Center

Creating experiences that allow you to pause, unearth your wisdom within, and move toward what makes you fully alive. Together, living out of this aliveness, we cultivate a more compassionate world.


Your Path

At Second Breath, we don’t believe in a top-down spirituality. We place trust in the student. Discern the path that is right for you.

Join us each Wednesday at 12pm EST for a community spiritual practice. Whether you are new to mindfulness or an experienced practitioner, this is a space for authenticity, connection, and care.

Spring Semester 2024 Programs

Reconnect with community and explore – with heart, body and mind – topics like labyrinth as meditation; Jesus as a radical; and reiki as a spiritual tool. This Spring 2024, in-person programming in Greensboro, NC.



At Second Breath Center, we are able to offer spiritual practices, programs, and space for belonging and becoming through the generosity of our community members, grants, and family foundations. Some of our gathering spaces are offered freely. Others are offered on a sliding scale payment structure. Cost will never be a barrier to accessing our classes. We provide scholarships by request for retirees, students, and those experiencing financial need up to 100% cost. There is no burden of proof and no strings attached. Simply fill out this short form to request a scholarship.


Everything we do is grounded in and springs from our core tenets. These tenets evolve as we – the organization, the community, the world – evolve. Most recently, in response to an ever-polarized nation and as we are exploring our history as a predominantly white community in a city with rich racial diversity and a proud legacy of racial justice and civil rights advocacy, we have committed a new core tenet that grounds our approach to work: Strength in Perspectives.


We believe there is strength in broadened perspectives; in listening, in learning, and in allowing for transformation in yourself. We have found that this transformation seems to influence the way you are, see and interact with the world – and this transformation is always a part of a journey.

Join us weekly on Wednesdays at noon on Zoom for a 30 minute spiritual practice. Whether you are new to meditation or an experienced practitioner, this is a space for authenticity, connection, and care.



Last fall, at the inaugural annual Community Listening Session, we heard a longing for opportunities to come together in person outside of the “classroom” setting. When we hear a call, we seek to respond! As such we’re hosting a community potluck to celebrate the end of spring semester. No agenda: just good food and good company.




Weekly Community Practice

For more than two decades, we’ve supported students moving beyond a mere intellectual understanding of God, faith, and love to actually experiencing them with mind, heart, and body. The best method we know for cultivating this shift is spiritual practice.

Join us virtually every Wednesday at 12pm EST for a guided spiritual practice led by a Second Breath facilitator.
