Wearing a luminous robe, the Venerable Andrew Tikkhaviro led students and faculty in a state of meditation.

With 14 years of experience and with a master in computer engineering, Venerable Andrew has led meditation sessions around the world.

 “I have to traveled to many places to teach; I have gone to Cuba, Malaysia and India where hundreds of people attended in one session,” said Tikkhaviro. “I hope to reach more people and more places.”

Tikkhaviro is now at Cal Poly Pomona every Tuesday during U-Hour to lead a weekly meditation group in building 41, room 11.

According to the National Center for Complementary Health and Integrative Health, meditation can help improve psychological distress, anxiety, depression and increase relaxation and overall health.

Meditations are held in an intimate room where participants can practice in a judgment-free space in the hopes to improve in meditation and be able to practice on their own, as well as live a heather lifestyle.

This has been the result as students and faculty participating meet, take their places on the floor or chairs in a circle and close their eyes as Tikkhaviro guides them.

Within the two months of the group running, students have been able to see the changes in their own personal meditation practice.
