I wrote a weekly religion column for the Boulder Daily Camera for five years. Boulder, Colorado is home to Shambhala Buddhism, Renewal Judaism, the Buddhist-centered Naropa University, and many faith-based student groups at the University of Colorado. Spiritual life in this outdoorsy town is unlike anywhere else: One of Boulder's rabbis host Passover seders on hiking trails. A Buddhist who lived life as a hermit returned to Boulder to teach stressed-out corporate types about work/life balance. And a "spiritual, not religious" group found their new meeting place at a restaurant serving spiritual "potions" made with healing crystals.
