David Bryce Yaden is a Research Fellow and PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania who works in both The Positive Psychology Center and The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. His research focus is on the psychology and neuroscience of spiritual, self-transcendent, and other positively transformative experiences. Specifically, he is interested in understanding how these experiences can result in long-term changes to well-being and how they alter fundamental faculties of consciousness such as the sense of time, space, and self. He is the editor of Being Called and is currently writing a book called The Varieties of Spiritual Experiences: A Twenty-First Century Update for Oxford University Press. His work has been covered by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, New York Magazine, and NPR.
