Denyse O’Leary, co-author of, The Spiritual Brain, discusses the compatibility of Christian doctrine and new discoveries in human consciousness.

[USPRwire, Thu Feb 26 2009] Join Alex Tsakiris for an interview with co-author Christian journalist and author of, The Spiritual Brain, Denyse O’Leary. During the 45-minute interview, Ms. O’Leary discusses what science is discovering about the spiritual experience:

“When people have a genuine mystical experience, they generate theta waves while they are awake which are normally generated through in deep sleep. So what we’re discovering is that when people have a spiritual experience and they say it wasn’t like a normal experience, they're telling the truth, they're not imagining it.”
