Welcome to Your CFV Wellness
We all experience change and transition in our lives. Now, more than ever, it is important that we take care of ourselves. Spiritual, physical and emotional balance are essential to our overall well-being and help us to build resilience and confidence. The CFV offers multiple ways for Butler students, faculty and staff to engage in their own wellness practices.
Weekly Meditation Schedule at the CFV
Learning to meditate can help to calm the mind and encounter life circumstances with greater confidence. Taught as a secular practice with deep roots in contemplative traditions, meditation helps to connect us with our overall wellness by harmonizing mind and body helping us to alleviate anxiety and to build resilience, regardless of faith and philosophical views.
Please join us for a half hour of silent meditation. Practice your own form of meditation or receive instruction in the practice. Contact Marguerite Stanciu, mindfulness meditation instructor and teacher to receive instruction and learn more about mindfulness meditation.
Koru Mindfulness for Emerging Adults and all Butler Community Members
The koru symbol is a spiral shape based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattooing, where it symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. Koru Mindfulness consists of a 4-class series to help you to discover your own innate ability to be mindful, build resilience and confidence so that you can be your best as life happens.
For more information and to register for a class email Amy Arnold, Koru Facilitator.
Reflection, Meditation, and Prayer Rooms
If you are looking for a quiet space to reflect, pray, or meditate in the midst of the busy academic day, these rooms are designed to be available and convenient for you. The rooms are located on the first floor of Jordan Hall, side by side, JH 182 C and D and will be open from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM every Monday–Friday and are a satellite of the Center for Faith and Vocation. Questions about the Reflection, Meditation, and Prayer rooms in Jordan Hall can be directed to CFV Assistant Director, Marguerite Stanciu, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Spiritual Care and Connection: Request A Conversation
Butler students, faculty, and staff are busy. In the midst of all the many priorities of academics, campus life, and working towards one’s future, sometimes we need to pause, breathe, and get support. The Center for Faith and Vocation staff as well as our CFV Community Advisors are available for conversations, making connections, and offering care.
