Depression and anxiety are increasing among us, and a large percentage of people get no lasting relief from standard treatment, either medication or therapy. What if the answer is in our brains? Psychologist Lisa Miller has come to believe that spirituality is the brain’s natural shield against depression and anxiety, and she’s got the scientific evidence to back that up. Miller is a professor of clinical psychology at Columbia University and director of the Spirituality Mind Body Institute at Columbia Teachers College. Her new book is “The Awakened Brain: The New Science of Spirituality and Our Quest for an Inspired Life.”
