Clinical Psychophysiology, Science, and the Soul
Harold Koenig wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association, that "A whole person is someone who has physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions. Neglecting any of these aspects of humanity leaves the person incomplete and could interfere with healing. He said that his investigations do not measure soul, but they may serve to show that soulful experiences have consequences for physical health.

Soul and Spirit in Health Care
Donald Moss, PhD
Biofeedback interventions help to cultivate a mental attitude of "letting go," and teach a physiological emotional self-quieting, which creates meditative conditions conducive to spiritual experiences. By training patients to modify brain states, neuro feedback induces states of consciousness
conducive to spiritual awakening and personal transformation. "…we saw evidence of a neurological process that has evolved to allow us humans to transcend material existence and acknowledge and connect with a deeper, more spiritual part of ourselves perceived us as an absolute, universal reality that connects us to all that is" (Newberg, D'Aquili, & Rause, 2001, p. 9).
Transcendental Consciousness as Self-Referral Awareness: The Platform for Psychophysiological Homeostasis and Perfect Health. The article presents a current view of the health-related applications of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation (TM) program, as noted by a TM teacher and researcher. The writer traces the development of research in the medical field concerning the role of TM as a preventive and corrective strategy for promoting homeostasis. Current physiological feedback loop models and speculative quantum theoretical ideas are considered as mechanisms that mediate the holistic impact of TM on health.
Deeksha and the Brain
Deeksha Energy seems to be transmitted through the Brain's left prefrontal Area. The hypothesis that the Deeksha (energy transfer between two persons) initiates Kundalini Awakening and prepares for a shift in the brain's command centre. On many occasions they had the opportunity to record the EEG of the subject while Amma was giving Deeksha to other persons. These studies were done in the Spring of 2005 at New Brain - New World in Symbion Science Park, Copenhagen.
