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.

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.

What is spiritual care?


The CFV champions the “Meaning and Purpose” dimension of BU Be Well, Butler’s wellness model.
