Wijsheid en zingeving: net zo belangrijk als sporten.
Als kind van een spiritueel ingestelde en bijgelovige moeder en een atheïstische vader heb ik altijd in 2 werelden geleefd, en heb ik geleerd om te zoeken naar bruggen die beide werelden verbinden. Capabele bruggenbouwers zijn mensen die niet strijden met de wereld aan de andere kant van de brug, maar die werken aan wederzijds begrip.
Lisa Miller is zo’n bruggenbouwer.
Het enige wat ik aan haar TEDtalk heb toe te voegen, is dat je ook op een atheïstische of wetenschappelijke manier met wijsheid & zingeving kunt bezig zijn. Het gaat om het effect, niet om de manier waarop. Mijns inziens kun je het woord ‘spiritueel’ beter vervangen met ‘gezond verbonden met het grote geheel”. Dat laat elk mens vrij om een eigen belevingswereld te hebben.

How Spirituality Can Protect You w/ Dr. Lisa Miller | #OWNSHOW | Oprah Online
Lisa Miller at TEDxTeachersCollegeIn this spiritually awakening talk, Lisa Miller invites listeners to assume a child-like curiosity for the universe. Explaining that mindfulness is a metaphorical gateway to appreciating one's surroundings and being appreciated by one's surroundings, Miller encourages listeners to develop a connection between the self and a spiritual universe. Citing research evidence of the positive effects of mindfulness practice and spiritualism on the brain at a material level, Miller makes a remarkable link between brain science, consciousness, and the universe.
Lisa Miller, Ph.D. is a member of the faculty of Teachers College, Columbia University. As founder of the Spirituality Mind Body Institute, Dr. Miller's research focuses extensively on spirituality, mental health, and wellness.
