Can a simple meditation technique that dates back over 5,000 years help people living with HIV today overcome toxic stress, boost T-cell count, and improve quality of life?
That is the subject of a conference and news briefing to be held in San Francisco on Thursday, October 30, to present the results of a first-ever demonstration project studying the effects of Transcendental Meditation (TM) on 150 meditating clients and staff at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF).
The conference will also launch a new national initiative to teach TM to 10,000 people living with HIV in San Francisco and across the country.
The webinar will originate from The City Club of San Francisco, and be held from 9 am to 10:30 am (PDT).
The demonstration project is a partnership between SFAF and the David Lynch Foundation HIV Initiative.
Conference panelists include:
Thomas Roth, Director, David Lynch Foundation HIV Initiative
Jeffrey Leiphart, Ph.D. Senior Director of Programs and Services, San Francisco AIDS Foundation
Sumedha Chhatre, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, HIV Prevention Research Division, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania
