Uniting Mind, Body, Spirit
Science and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

Continuing times of uncertainty and rapid change can have an adverse effect on our overall health and cause a paralysis of action. How do we cope? What tools do we have to help us? The answer lies in accessing the best from spirituality and neuroscience. The writings of St. Ignatius and the knowledge gained from cutting-edge neuroscience provide clues to managing our lives.
