Have you ever been around someone who, without saying a word, made you feel calm, peaceful, and loved? In the opposite way, have you ever been around someone who, without words, made you feel uncomfortable or agitated? Would you believe that these feelings are caused by that person’s state of heart? Listen as Dr. Trent Orfanos, MD, Functional Cardiologist talks to us about the amazing connection between our spiritual and physical hearts! This ten-minute piece was taken from a larger webinar presentation, Spiritual & Physical Heart: What’s the Connection?, by the Center for Family Care of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.
