Prayer may reshape your brain (NPR)

I cannot recommend highly enough this series of programs on NPR's All Things Considered regarding the brain and spirituality. Yesterday's show focused on what the brain looks like during prayer or meditation.

"The more you focus on something — whether that's math or auto racing or football or God — the more that becomes your reality, the more it becomes written into the neural connections of your brain.”

~ Andrew Newberg, neuroscientist
