Trained as both a biologist and a psychologist, Joan Borysenko has had a lifelong interest in the connections between science, psychology and spirituality. Exploring ways to shed self-blame and the pessimism of unhealthy guilt, she retrieves the wonder and mystery of being alive, and reviews the 21 telling “expressions” that indicate excessive guilt. She speaks of the ultimate value of faith, and of going beyond yesterday’s regrets and the worry of anticipated tomorrows. (hosted by Michael Toms)
