Dr. Thompson is a practicing psychiatrist and the author of Anatomy of the Soul, a critically acclaimed book demonstrating how insights from interpersonal neurobiology resonate with spiritual truths – and validating the deep human need for meaningful relationships as a key to a life of hope and fulfillment, He is also the founder of Being Known, an organization working to develop teaching programs, seminars and resource materials to help individuals explore the connection between interpersonal neurobiology and Christian spirituality.
