How does spirituality influence health and wellbeing? This has been a question of interest to me for over 30 years. After teaching psychiatric mental health nursing at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels, I began a second career in research to examine the efficacy of repeating a mantram—word or phrase with spiritual associations—on stress, quality of life, and spiritual well-being.
I learned about mantram repetition from my spiritual teacher, Sri Eknath Easwaran, who founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Tomales, CA. My goal is to deliver mantram repetition to various populations because it is a “spiritual life-line” that can help one focus attention and transform consciousness.
