Seat of Many Blessings

Sculptor Rebecca Thompson's  "Seat of Many Blessings,"  a large maple bench which housed interdenominational blessings, was located in the upper floor of the Student Bookstore Coffee Shop. Holy water, an Aramaic prayer and items from a Tibetan healing mandala and Tibetan healing medicine, blessed by the Dali Lama in India, were all sealed within a hidden compartment. The concept was to promote an exchange of good will and blessings for all who sit on the bench.
