Meditation-Related Challenges: Public Lecture

I'll be giving a 90-minute public lecture with my colleagues Willoughby Britton, PhD, Jared Lindahl, PhD. We'll review the findings from the Varieties of Contemplative Experience project, a project which aims to improve our understanding of the range of experiences, both positive and negative, associated with the practice of meditation. The lecture will include detailed descriptions of meditation-related challenges, how often they occur, how long they last, potential risk factors, and different ways these experiences are interpreted.
