Comment – What I like about this article is how it says that the brain “mediates” spirituality. I’ve been trying to find an easy word to describe my beliefs on the topic.

One doesn’t want to ignore the importance of neurology and overall health. But at the same time, one doesn’t want to reduce the human being, spiritual powers and the workings of God to a bundle of chemicals.

That kind of vulgar materialism can do more harm than good, in my opinion.
