The Spiritual Brain – Part 2

Interview

Posted November 12th, 2017

What does it mean to be spiritual? Is “spirit” just a supernatural idea? A bedtime story parents tell to their children to make them believe in God? Or is there something physical, tangible, measurable to spirit?

Glenn is joined by Kevin & Campbell Oleson to discuss these questions with neuroscientist Dr. Michael Adam Ferguson, to preview Michael’s upcoming project “The Spiritual Brain Podcast,” and to better understand his scientific approach to spirituality.
