Michael Speca, Psy.D., C.Psych.
send email Dr. Michael Speca is a Clinical Psychologist at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Calgary. He traces his interest in meditation to 1976 while a student of dance at the State University of New York at Brockport, where he was introduced to zazen, yoga, and other delightful ways of being by teachers and friends who had learned to "sit" at the nearby Rochester Zen Center. He feels fortunate to have been able to share mindfulness practices with so many others and is grateful to all of his teachers past, present and future.
