Spiritual Meditation and Health: Research published

At Saybrook University where I work and teach and research, in our Department of Mind-Body Medicine we are proud to contribute to evidence on the interconnectivity of mind-body and spirit for health and wellness.  Our latest research on meditation and health has just been published with @SpringerNature in Journal of Religion and Health (JORH).  “Spiritually focused meditation practices appear to increase the emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of cancer survivors, which could translate into better physiological outcomes.”  Congratulations to new PhD Dr. Kanishtha Agarwal for taking the lead in this authorship and my colleagues Drs. Heintzman and Kelly for their contributions to this research and publication.  The entire peer-review article is available for all to ready via open-access. Read here: https://rdcu.be/b1KHF
