About Dr. Karen
By training I am a psychologist with expertise in clinical neuropsychology (that would mean assessing and doing rehabilitation with folks having some kind of brain injury), rehabilitation, and heart and brain biofeedback.
I started reading Swedenborg’s writings in 1986 and was intrigued by their emphasis on the idea of correspondences between people/events/places/etc. in the scriptures and in the “real world”. Sometimes I was amazed by the fit between what this 18th century mystic was writing and what I knew of psychology and the brain — sometimes I disagreed and struggled to see how what he was writing might fit better if we understood it differently.
Although I don’t attend a church founded on Swedenborg’s writings, I remain intrigued and this blog grew out of my private thoughts as I read emailed sermons, newsletters, etc. I hope the contents are of some interest and that you will subscribe in order to get notices of new posts or comments.
