Fetzer Advisory Council on Natural Sciences
It is now clear that love and forgiveness are deeply biological. The same neurobiological systems that allow the emergence of love also are essential for both mental and physical health. We call for a more profound understanding of the scientific basis of love and forgiveness.
Love and its connection with health and wellness is a key area of inquiry for the Fetzer Advisory Council on Natural Sciences. In addition, the group looks beyond the individual to highlight love's power in the interconnected elements of life that span healthy communities, a thriving environment, and sustainable use of resources.
The Fetzer Advisory Council on the Natural Sciences is one of 16 councils seeking to foster a greater awareness of how love and forgiveness are essential to their sectors.
