Del Mar, CA (PressExposure) February 25, 2009 -- Join Alex Tsakiris for an interview with co-author Christian journalist and author of, The Spiritual Brain, Denyse O'Leary. During the 45-minute interview, Ms. O'Leary discusses what science is discovering about the spiritual experience:
"When people have a genuine mystical experience, they generate theta waves while they are awake which are normally generated through in deep sleep. So what we're discovering is that when people have a spiritual experience and they say it wasn't like a normal experience, they're telling the truth, they're not imagining it."
