Every Wednesday

Mindfulness reduces and alleviates stress through improving emotion regulation, leading to a better mood and better ability to handle stress. SRJC students can now benefit from joining mindfulness groups on the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses! 

The Santa Rosa Mindful Meet-ups will be held every Wednesday at 3:00pm in Mi Casa (Garcia Hall, 860). Our first meeting will explore meditation as a practical means for calming yourself, for letting go of your biases and seeing what is, openly and clearly. 

In Petaluma, join us every Wednesday at 11:30 in the Intercultural Center (Jacobs Hall, 116) to explore ways to reduce stress and build community!
