Kent State University offers a free, four-week meditation class at the Recreation and Wellness Center that everyone (students, faculty and staff) is welcome to attend. The class meets for 75 minutes and students learn 11 different mindfulness and meditation techniques. They focus on a form of mindfulness and meditation called Koru, an evidence-based training specifically designed for emerging adults, according to Mary Ann Raghanti, Ph.D., chairperson of the Department of Anthropology and a professor in the School of Biomedical Sciences. She’s also one of the trained Koru Mindfulness instructors. They follow the lessons from the book “The Mindful Twenty-Something” by Holly B. Rogers, which aims to guide young adults through meditation and mindfulness as they go through the busyness of life.
