Reflection on the Interview:
I chose to interview my Meditation and Relaxation professor because she seems to be relaxed, calm, and never lets her worries effect her. That is the type of person I aspire to be because I know that with stress and anxiety, my mood can easily be affected. With most of her answers I was not surprised at all. Her answers had to do with mindfulness and respect and being content with your inner-self. I thought that her answer to the definition of teaching was particularly well said and interesting. Getting students to transform information into learning is a different perspective that I have never considered teaching from. From this conversation I learned that being happy originates from your inner self and you have to be calm and focus on meditation. This interview has shifted my view of faculty. Most faculty are stressed out and complain about their job, whereas this professor is always genuinely happy and calm. I have never seen her upset, and she was happy to answer my questions.
