What is love? What is universal love? Is there a difference and how can you measure that? Is there a scientific approach to this? Can we become more loving and how does that impact the world on a whole? We discuss these topics and find out at least some answers to these large questions with our beautiful guest Dr. Natalie Trent. This neuroscientist and shamanic energy healer has done extensive research with Harvard Medical School and shares her findings with the ladies on Proof of Love.
