Joining us to tell us about the emerging 'science of spirituality' is one of its pioneers, Dr Lisa Miller. Lisa's award-winning research demonstrates that leading an active spiritual life can powerfully transform physical and psychological wellbeing.

New York Times bestselling author and professor of psychology and education at Colombia University, Lisa has spent decades researching the effects of spirituality on the brain. Her latest ground-breaking book, and the subject of this talk, is The Awakened Brain, which explores the neuroscience of spirituality. 

Bringing scientific rigour to the most intangible aspect of our lives, Lisa offers insights into the neurological basis for the increased resilience that comes with nurturing spirituality and highlights its measurable positive effects: decreasing the likelihood of depression and substance abuse, and shifting the course of recovery in many other clinical settings.

In this talk, Lisa will discuss her own personal and professional challenges, which gave her a greater appreciation of insights that are important to so many of us and yet so often dismissed as unscientific. Her inspiring and compassionate research will help revolutionise your understanding of spirituality, mental health and how we find meaning, purpose and healing in life.
