Anne Strieber interviews Mark Robert Waldman about some of the breakthrough discoveries that have recently been made about the way a relationship with God actually changes the brain.
12 minutes of meditation a day can slow down aging.

Mark Waldman offers profoundly useful insight into the actual, physical power of God's presence to make us healthier and improve brain function.
