Those of you who have met and listened to us in seminars on spirituality will at least have heard the name of Andrew Newberg and his research into brain patterns and spiritual experience. Some of you might even have wondered if we make it all up, and one or two of you have even said so! So the sceptics (and others, hopefully) will be fascinated by the main feature in this week’s Time magazine, which not only reports on all this but extends the conversation by asking (among other things) about the spirituality of social networking sites. And the good news seems to be that, even (or maybe especially) in uncertain times, having a spiritual connection is good for your health. But then, you all knew that, didn’t you.
