The Science of Prayer
Show Notes

Wall Street Journal  columnist Elizabeth Bernstein joins us to talk about her recent article on the science of prayer. Research shows that prayer-in any form-has health benefits, particularly when we find what we feel is a safe space to pray, and we see it as a collaborative practice. Bernstein talks about the research to support the advantages of praying, and shares her own powerful story about what inspired the topic for this column.
