Book Description

Whether they are followers of Christianity and Judaism, or other practices like yoga and Transcendentalism, human beings have long reported life-shaping experiences that many attribute to direct spiritual intervention. But more and more, these experiences and the physical and psychological well-being they bring are not just matters of faith. They are experiences around which scientific research is getting a firmer grip and far greater understanding.
