Join ParentMap on Nov. 1 for a fascinating talk by psychologist and New York Times–bestselling author Lisa Miller, Ph.D., on her groundbreaking exploration of the neuroscience of spirituality and its role in building an inspired life of meaning and contribution. 

Based on her newest book, “The Awakened Brain: The New Science of Spirituality and Our Quest for an Inspired Life,” Miller will detail the surprising new science of innate spirituality and how to engage it in our lives and parenting to enhance grit, optimism and resilience in ourselves and in our children — providing insulation against the ills of addiction, trauma and depression.

As a special promotion, the first 100 purchasers of the 2022–2023 ParentEd Talks series pass will receive an e-book or hardcover copy of “The Awakened Brain.” The book is also available as an add-on purchase when registering for Miller’s Nov. 1 talk.
