Book Review – The Awakened Brain: The New Science of Spirituality and Our Quest for an Inspired Life, by Lisa Miller

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 level of awareness of the world around us, according to psychologist,
author and researcher Lisa Miller, PhD. This awareness, or spirituality, offers hope to those like herself,
who struggled with depression. The belief in the concept we are not alone, and talking about it,
physically changes the brain and can help all who seek recovery, healing and resilience.

“When we become spiritually aware—through synchronicity, for example—it’s a sign that despite the
uncertainty, we are aligned with the force of life.”
