In this episode, Bishop Curry talks with Dr. Thema Bryant, clinical psychologist, incoming president of the American Psychological Association, professor of psychology at Pepperdine University, and an ordained minister in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Dr. Thema invites us to pause and look more closely at the intersection of spirituality and psychology – what are the bounds of each and how and where do they overlap?
She encourages us to hold on to the spiritual and religious practices that have always drawn us closer to God and also explores the themes of the sacred now, interconnectedness of all living beings, mindfulness, generosity, surrender, self-compassion, and humility.
