A disucssion on how mindful meditation and prayer can help us be more positive, and actually change our neurological makeup!

The 60's original soundtrack Star Treck describes space as the final frontier. But our guest Dr. Kirk Bingaman says there is another frontier we are only beginning to understand: our inner space. 

Dr. Kirk Bingaman is the Associate Professor at Fordham Univeristy's Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. He's also the author of the book The Power of Neuroplasticity for Pastoral and Spiritual Care.

His research has lead him to understand how mindful meditation and prayer can help us manage our negative thoughts and actually change the neurological makeup of our brains.
