The Arthur Brooks Show

Season 2, Episode 6: With all your mind

When people say they love God, what do they actually mean? Are they merely describing a feeling? A physiological experience? Or something more? Arthur seeks answers to what’s happening in our hearts and in our brains when people express love for the divine. Featuring conversations with Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles, and Curt Thompson, psychiatrist and expert on neuroscience and spiritual practice.
