Spiritual Practices for the Brain
by Anne Kertz Kernion
Anne will be leading a FREE virtual Book Club, beginning Wednesday night, January 6th, 8-9 pm EST. It will be based on four chapters of the book. (See schedule on right.) She will begin each one hour session with a short reflection, and then break into small groups to discuss a few questions. If you'd like to take part, here's the link to register.
Caring for Mind, Body, and Soul
For centuries, spiritual and meditative practices have helped people become more calm, focused, and happy. Christian saints such as John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila encouraged habits of the heart and soul.
Now we know that such habits benefit the whole person.
In Spiritual Practices for the Brain, Anne Kertz Kernion relies on the most current research to
link spiritual practices to improved health. Relying on her education and experience in brain
development, positive psychology, and theology, Anne is able to relate seemingly simple
practices such as focused breathing, gardening, practicing kindness, or going for a walk with powerful
results for your mind, body, and soul. Her presentation is friendly and readable, and each chapter explores a specific topic such as the Breath, Gratitude, and Self-Compassion, and includes
simple practices for readers to try.
