For centuries, spiritual and meditative practices have helped people become more calm, focused, and happy. Christian saints such as John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila encouraged habits of the heart and soul. Now we know that such habits benefit the whole person. 

In Spiritual Practices for the Brain, Anne Kertz Kernion (founder of Cards by Anne) relies on the most current research to link spiritual practices to improved health. Relying on her education and experience in brain development, positive psychology, and theology, Anne is able to relate seemingly simple practices such as focused breathing, gardening, practicing kindness, or going for a walk with powerful results for your mind, body, and soul. Her presentation is friendly and readable, and each chapter explores a specific topic such as the Breath, Gratitude, and Self-Compassion, and includes simple practices for readers to try. As an artist and an exercise instructor, she exudes encouragement and hope for the person learning a new practice or revisiting an old one. 

Anne Kertz Kernion, founder of the inspirational greeting card company Cards by Anne, is an international lecturer and retreat leader and holds an MA in Theology from Duquesne University. She is a former adjunct faculty member at Carlow University and author of A Year of Spiritual Companionship. Anne teaches yoga and enjoys biking and hiking. She and her husband Jack have three grown children and six grandchildren.
