Annual seminar provides perspective on role of sacred moments in healing

Baylor College of Medicine, the Menninger Clinic and the Institute for Spirituality and Health will host the 19th Annual Psychotherapy and Faith Seminar on Friday, Nov. 12, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Houston.

The church is located at 5501 Main St.

Lecturers will focus on sacred, or spiritual, experiences and their role in healing and provide a model for incorporating the sacred in psychotherapy. Participants will learn how paranormal, psychic and telepathic experiences can function to direct, heal and resolve life issues.

Dr. James Lomax, professor and associate chair of the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at BCM, will begin the conference with a lecture entitled "Observations on Sacred Moments in Psychotherapy" in which he will share clinical examples of experiences that can be considered sacred moments. Drs. Peter Fonagy of University College in London, Jeffery Kripal of Rice University and Kimberly Leary of Harvard University will also make presentations.
