Dr. Andrew Newberg is a prominent neuroscientist, author and researcher who has studied what our brains do with our beliefs, enlightenment and even with God. He will show us that the first step towards true understanding is being willing to acknowledge our biases and predisposed ways of thinking. In other words, there is always another side to hear but we often fail to truly listen because we are afraid that the opposing side might threaten our own viewpoint. Dr. Newberg knows what it looks like to hold ones convictions because he does so with a sense of openness and compassionate curiosity. He is a pioneer who has taken on neuroscience and theology--two fields that at first glance, seem more opposed than interconnected-- and helps us to make sense of exactly what our brains experience in the process.
