He still values how science can help to understand psychology and behavior, and how the blend of spirituality and psychology can help heal past trauma better when used together. He describes how one can embrace new perspectives with core beliefs. We all have challenges to transcend for the evolution of our physical bodies and our goals. He shares how we live in a multidimensional universe and our loved ones are not far away. These experiences have helped his grief and changed the way he teaches his psychology courses to include spirituality.
