I’m away at a conference this week. I’ll resume our regular M, W, F posting schedule on 1/23. In the meantime, here are a couple of lectures I think you’ll enjoy. They help us think about body-spirit connectedness. They’re by brain scientists, and give us context for thinking about how spiritual transformation happens (1st lecture), and how we approach the the spiritual journey (2nd lecture).
Set aside an evening this week, have a listen, post your thoughts, and I’ll be back next Wednesday.

Big Ideas: Dr. Norman Doidge on Neuroplasticity
Dr. Doidge talks about how the brain changes itself, and how, in the process, we change. It turns out, a great deal of the ancient spiritual wisdom on how we experience transformation on the spiritual journey intuited the brain science. Have a listen.

Dr. Iain McGilchrist on The Divided Brain
Dr. McGilchrist talks about how left-right brain science is advancing rapidly. Turns out, the spiritual journey is right-brain intensive and we live in a left-brain intensive culture. How we pursue the spiritual life has to take this into account. Have a listen.
And again… back next Wednesday.
