Podcast: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind
by Annette Gebuhr - Freelance Writer
“Our movements, our awareness and our consciousness are all only the product of the activity of neurons in our brain.” Is that so? Dr. Marjorie Woollacott thought so, describing herself as a “curious sceptic” when her sister invited her to a meditation retreat.
Imagine her surprise when the purely material thinker and neuroscientist, teaching at the University of Oregon, made a life changing experience, having a huge awakening during one of her meditations.

What she found out? Listen in to this witty interview with New York radio and media personality Valerie Smaldone who sat down with Marjorie during the HEALING SUMMIT 2016 in Berlin.
