Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will offer “The Science and Practice of Meditation,” a continuing education elective for psychologists, therapists, and social workers. Jon Spiegel and Greg Siegle will lead the course held five Monday evenings Oct. 15-Nov. 12 from 7:00-9:00.  

This course will have three areas of focus: 1) Presenting scientific evidence that supports the use of meditation in clinical settings; 2) Learning meditation fundamentals in a clear, coherent, and ethically sound manner; and 3) Presenting practical steps for teaching meditation fundamentals to clients. Each class will have two sections. In the first section, there will be presentations on the science of meditation featuring local university scientists. The second section will focus on learning meditation techniques for ourselves and our clients.
