LearningBinge Instructor Trish O’Connor – The Spiritual Brain

As we know from neuroscience, there is a powerful urge towards spirituality and meaning, even in folks who may not consider themselves to be particularly religious or spiritual. This hard-wiring helps enrich our lives and brings out the best version of ourselves.

Trish O’Connor is the owner of Epiclesis Consulting, LLC, which provides products and services to enhance communication about issues related to a person’s sense of ultimate meaning, including editorial services, ghostwriting, writing aids, and spiritual retreats. She holds a BA from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana and a Master of Divinity from Aquinas Institute in St. Louis, Missouri.
