Sims 123

Those who engage in contemplative practice know its positive effects, but documenting its value to others is not always easy. Several Syracuse University editors and authors have contributed to a new volume, Empirical Studies of Contemplative Practices. Drawing on a range of disciplines, the volume explores the question of how to research contemplative practice to better illustrate its value.  

An event celebrating the book’s publication will be held Friday, February 15 from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm in Sims 123. The panelists are Dr. Joshua Felver of Psychology, Dr. Rachel Razza of Falk College, and Dr. Qiu Wang of the School of Education.

Colleagues from across the university are invited to converse with the SU authors at the reception to follow at 1:30 pm.

Copies of the book will be for sale at the event.

The event is sponsored by the Humanities Center, the Contemplative Collaborative, the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies, among others.
