Promote the Brain Booth!

  • Share your ideas. You can propose an activity, provide feedback about your experiences, offer suggestions about how we might spread the word, and more. 
  • Facilitate a special session. Are you a meditation teacher? Yoga instructor? Hypnotherapist? Massage therapist? Philosopher? Artist? We would be happy to support your volunteer service in our Library. Please note that HSU is a public university and has no religious affiliation.
  • Partner with us. If you're a faculty member interested in exploring contemplative pedagogy, we'd love to hear from you. If you or your undergraduate/graduate students are interested in exploring research around mindfulness or contemplation, we'd be happy to support your scholarship.
  • Donate materials. We're currently in need of Nintendo Wii games and floor cushions & mats for meditation, but we would appreciate being in contact with you if you have possible items for donation.


Interested in any of the above, or something else to share? 

Send an email to Katia (Natural Resources & Sciences Librarian) and include Brain Booth in the subject line.
