The Duke Society for Spirituality, Theology and Health has recently launched this website that includes links to many research papers on the connections between religious beliefs, spiritual practice and your good health. In addition to learning more about how prayer sometimes heals, you can sign up for a newsletter here that will alert you to the latest studies and papers. You may also join the society to support its work and stay abreast of this fascinating subject.

Here and here are interviews with the society’s co-cirector Harold Koenig on how one’s spiritual practice and religious devotion can have some positive health consequences.
