SDSU Library, in partnership with the Division of Diversity and Innovation, is pleased to announce the opening of our new Mind, Body & Spirit Room in the Digital Humanities Center (LA 61A). This is a space for individuals of all religious faiths and non-religious beliefs to focus on their mind, body, and spirit, whether in prayer, meditation, or quiet contemplation.
The Mind, Body & Spirit Room was designed to support students’ extra-curricular needs. By providing a quiet space for quiet contemplation, reflection, and prayer, the room supports our students in holistic ways that extend beyond the classroom. The room is part of the Library’s efforts to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion by creating a welcoming space where all members of the SDSU community feel a sense of belonging.
The room can be used by up to four people when the Digital Humanities Center is open: 10am-4pm Monday through Friday (when classes are in session). The room contains:
Yoga mats and prayer rugs
We will be working in the coming months to add warm lighting and calming nature-based images on the walls.
The room is available on a first come, first served basis throughout the day, and is not available for reservations. We encourage all visitors to review our guidelines before entering the space.
More information about SDSU Mind, Body & Spirit rooms is available at the Division of Diversity and Innovation website (https://diversity.sdsu.edu/about/cdo). Questions about the Library’s Mind, Body & Spirit Room can be directed to Dr. Pam Lach, Digital Humanities Librarian and Director of the Digital Humanities Center (plach AT sdsu DOT edu).
