Wisdom of the Body

Feb 16, 2024

Wellness expert Heather Grzych discusses the topic of spirituality: what it is, how it’s different than religion, and whether there is really a split between the fields of science and spirituality. Heather discusses the meaning of the English words spirit, spirituality and materiality, and the Sanskrit words prana and vata. She addresses what influences our beliefs, the problems that so many many religiously unaffiliated people see today, and why they still crave a spiritual experience.
