Mindful Monday meetings have begun in the aerobics room from 1:15 – 2 p.m. During meetings, students try different meditation techniques.

Dr. Francesco Bellini, associate professor of religious studies, instructs these meetings. He said, “I try to offer a new meditation technique every time. We do walking meditation, guided meditation, and even food meditation.” The goal is for students to use these techniques to help improve their everyday lives.

Dr. Bellini described his life before mediation as a “hot mess” until he started studying meditation techniques with teachers from various backgrounds and religions.

Dr Bellini said, “I think meditation helped me understand my reactions.” A lot of times we react to things without knowing what’s going on. Dr. Bellini said that a teacher once told him, “Be more like a lion and less like a dog.”
