January Term

January 3 - January 24

Every January, Holden Village welcomes students from colleges and seminaries for January Term or “J-Term” classes to build and practice community while learning together about topics ranging from religion to environmental studies.

Villagers will embrace new experiences from learning to cross country ski, meditating in a snowy candlelit labyrinth with an Epiphany bonfire, working together for the “Copper Chef” challenge to create a delicious meal with wacky ingredients, keeping the wood furnaces stoked, and participating in the daily rhythms of caring for one another and this place.

Registration for guests is limited during J-Term. However, additional volunteers are very much needed! Learn more and apply to volunteer during J-Term 

Interested in bringing your college, university, or seminary group to Holden Village? Contact education@holdenvillage.edu

Holden Village is a community where your questions are valued and encouraged. Most programs led by visiting teaching faculty occur during the summer months. However, Holden also invites faculty to teach sessions for special events and retreats throughout the rest of the year.
