Koru Mindfulness

Koru Mindfulness

Welcome to the Sac State Koru Mindfulness Page!

A koru, the spiral shape of the unfurling fern frond, is the natural representation of the balance between perpetual growth and stability.
This experiential workshop series offers skills in Mindfulness and Meditation, which offer the type of growth symbolized by the koru.  Beyond simply decreasing your stress, this course offers approaches and skills to help you find more satisfaction in your daily life. The course, consisting of 4 interactive and engaging classes, is designed to help you learn mindfulness through the practice of specific skills that calm and focus your mind; and through the practice of meditation.  If you are feeling pressured and stressed, or just interested in learning a new skill that can enrich your life, these classes are for you! This opportunity is for any student that is open to the experience of mindfulness and meditation. No experience necessary.   This group will meet in the Wellness HUB in the University Union.


All sessions will meet in the Wellness HUB in the University Union.
