Those who engage in contemplative practice know its positive effects, but documenting its value to others is not always easy. In this panel, Syracuse University authors who have contributed to a new volume, Empirical Studies of Contemplative Practices, discuss how they research contemplative practice to better illustrate its value.

The event panel includes:
Josh Felver,A&S/Psychology
Rachel Razza, Falk/Human Development & Family Science
Qiu Wang, Education/Higher Education

Contemplative Collaborative hosts this book talk, celebrating its editors and authors from five Syracuse colleges (Arts and Sciences, Falk College, the I-School, School of Education, and Visual and Performing Arts).

A reception follows the presentation.

To request accommodations, contact Diane Grimes (dsgrimes@syr.edu) by February 5.

This event is supported by the SU Humanities Center and the Contemplative Collaborative. Co-sponsors: Communication and Rhetorical Studies and Writing Studies, Rhetoric, and Composition.
