Recommended Articles

For people who are interested in getting into the deeper aspects of spirituality and health, and exploring current research, I have included a few articles below which I have found to be interesting.

Please note that I have only included titles and basic details for the articles, rather than the full academic reference, but this should be adequate to locate the articles on a range of databases.



Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy:  Search on this site for any subject related to philosophy.  great if you want to research the mind-body connection, consciousness, religion and spirituality, well-being, illness, and metaphysics.

BuddhaNet: A great resource about Buddhist approaches to life, how to relieve suffering, and how to reach enlightenment.  You can access a wide range of free downloads and eBooks here.

Google Scholar: Easy access to a wide range of academic papers.  Many are free to access, but some require a payment fee, which can be expensive, but worth checking out.
