TERRE HAUTE -

Students at Indiana State University now have a quiet place to reflect in the heart of the campus in Terre Haute.

The Tribune-Star reports the university dedicated its new Contemplative Garden on Friday. The garden is located in the courtyard of Root Hal.

Dr. Jean Kristeller, professor emeritus of psychology and co-founder of the Center for the Study of Health, Religion and Spirituality, says the garden is a place to let go of some stress.

The garden includes several stone benches, a walking path for meditation, stones inscribed with contemplative sayings, and a fountain.

Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics chairwoman Leslie Barratt says she hopes when people go through the garden they will reflect on the wisdom that's coming from other cultures and other traditions.
