Evidence-based Findings Supporting the Connection between Spirituality and the Human Brain w/ Dr. Lisa Miller

“Spirituality is involved with a circuit in the brain that every single one of us has been given from day one… and we can watch through our MRI machines how the brain moves when we are knowing, feeling, and experiencing our personal relationship with God.” -Dr. Lisa Miller

Lisa Miller, Ph.D., is the New York Times bestselling author of The Spiritual Child: The New Science on Parenting for Health and Lifelong Thriving and The Awakened Brain: The New Science of Spirituality and our Quest for an Inspired Life.
