Prayer & Science

Do prayer and distant healing work in terms of cure or other means of healing/wholeness? Does prayer physiologically impact the person who engages in this and related spiritual practices? Lori Erickson will share the results of her journalism interviews with various scientific researchers on the psychological effects of those who pray this Oct 19th. Numerous studies with conflicting findings will be examined. Erickson is a freelance writer from Iowa City who has written for many national magazines. She is also ordained as a deacon in the Episcopal Church and is a Healing Touch practitioner. Sponsored by the chaplain, Inter-Spiritual Life, and Soul Friends student leaders.
