The integration of science and spirituality may seem diametric, but these areas of study are more complimentary today than at any other time in history. Science is now proving what spirituality has been speaking to for millennia. This webinar examines how a spiritual approach to recovery is supported by findings in neuroscience. Examples of fMRI scans show changes in our brain as spiritual practices are used. Research-based models of spiritual approaches used in recovery are explained through the lens of neuroscience. These include MBSR, IFS, DBT and 12-Step Facilitation Therapy. Specific research supported practices of mindfulness, breath, mantra, and journaling examples will be given.

Learning Objectives
  • Gain basic knowledge of how neuroscience supports spiritual approaches to addiction treatment.
  • Understand how “spirituality” is defined and can be applied to non-religious persons in recovery.
  • Learn basic spiritual techniques that can be used in support of addiction treatment.
