Product description

Are we hard-wired for spiritual experience? And if so, why? On God and the Brain, Dr. Andrew Newberg reveals surprising new evidence that the human capacity for transcendent consciousness may have been a critical factor in our survival and evolutionary success as a species. This pioneer of brain studies and co-author of Why God Won't Go Away presents the first audio course on his groundbreaking research into the fascinating links between spirituality, biology, and the evolution of the brain. With new material from Dr. Newberg's research available nowhere else, this 3-CD programme features: - How prayer and meditation alter and enhance the physiology of the brain- "Neurotheology": how our brain chemistry shapes our sense of morality, meaning, and divine connection- Inside the heads of the optimist and the pessimist-exploring the survival value of positive thinking- The biology of forgiveness: why this spiritual act boosts the health of the nervous system- A special guided exercise for enhancing the listener's neurological capacity for balance and peace. Whether one is a devout Christian, a Buddhist meditator, or even a dedicated atheist, the part of the brain that controls spiritual experience has a profound impact on our entire identity. On God and the Brain, listeners join Dr. Andrew Newberg for a lucid and enthralling exploration of the uncharted regions of the mind-and what this new science means for our health, beliefs, and quality of life
