Reflections on Empirical Studies of Contemplative Practices Josh Felver (Psychology), Rachel Razza (Falk/Human Development and Family Science), Qiu Wan (School of Education). 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. Contemplative Collaborative hosts this book talk, celebrating its editors and authors from five Syracuse colleges (Arts and Sciences, Falk College, the iSchool, School of Education, and Visual and Performing Arts). A reception follows the presentation. To request accommodations, contact Diane Grimes, dsgrimes@syr.edu.
