A groundbreaking exploration of the neuroscience of spirituality and a bold new paradigm for health, healing, and resilience--from a New York Times bestselling author and award-winning researcher. Whether it's meditation or a walk in nature, reading a sacred text or saying a prayer, there are many ways to tap into a heightened awareness of the world around you and your place in it. In The Awakened Brain, psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller shows you how. Told alongside her own deeply personal journey of awakening, Dr. Miller’s groundbreaking research reveals that humans are universally equipped with a capacity for spiritual awakening, and that our brains become more resilient as a result of it. For leaders in business and government, truth-seekers, parents, healers, educators, and any person confronting life’s biggest questions, Dr. Miller combines cutting-edge science with on-the-ground application from people from all ages and walks of life, illuminating the surprising science of spirituality and how to engage it in our lives:     The awakened decision is the better decision. With an awakened perception, we are more creative, collaborative, ethical and innovative problem solvers.     The awakened brain is the healthier brain. An engaged spiritual life enhances grit, optimism, and resilience while providing insulation against addiction, trauma, and depression.     The awakened life is the inspired life. Loss, uncertainty, and even trauma are the gateways by which we are invited to move beyond merely coping with and transcend into a life of renewal, healing, joy and fulfillment.   Absorbing, uplifting, and ultimately enlightening, The Awakened Brain is Dr. Miller’s lively, conversation-starting saga of scientific discovery, packed with counterintuitive findings and practical advice for anyone looking for ways to access their innate spirituality and build a life of meaning and contribution.
