Below are resources produced by various projects we’ve worked on, as well as a list of various organizations we’re friendly with, which offer many resources of their own. You can also see some of our original videos on this page, and classes on science-engaged psychology here. If you have questions about this page, contact us at email@example.com.
Featured Resource | Psychologist Joey Fung’s Reflections on Mindfulness
We interviewed Joey Fung, an expert on the state and practice of mindfulness. In this video, she gives an overview of what mindfulness is, and separates fact from fiction in understanding its benefits. How does mindfulness relate to Christian spiritual practice and growth? This video is also included in our Brains & Embodiment class resource.
Featured Resource | Evolutionary Theology? Human Thriving with a Stone-aged Mind
There’s a theological idea that human thriving is a directional concept tied to our God-given purpose, yet this is importantly informed by scientific perspectives on what it means to be human. In this talk at TEDS’ Henry Center Symposia, Justin Barrett argues that a sciences-integrated theological method has great promise for impact on how we pursue thriving.
Visit our YouTube channel for a look at some of the video content from past projects by clicking here. Why not start by watching Oliver Crisp explore the idea of “free will” in a way that takes into account theology and scientific perspectives?
Michael Burdett is a theologian at University of Nottingham who thinks a lot about human flourishing, and especially as it relates to technology. In this conversation we talk about artificial intelligence, the influence of social media, what death has to do with a flourishing life, and much more.

Our friends at the organizations listed are always working to produce excellent resources for helping us on our journey of understand God, the world, and ourselves. We don’t always agree 100% with one another, but find these groups consistently offer meaningful contributions to conversations on today’s pressing topics. Even in our disagreements, we find avenues towards growth and truth-finding, as we engage in civil discourse.
