Dr. William Kent Larkin is a neuroscience researcher specializing in the neuroscience of happiness from the perspective of neuroscience research with an emphasis on the growing field of neurotheology. He is the originator of the UpSpiraLife 12 Step Positive Mind Group.

His vision is using his skills to grow faith and positivity that alter the neuroplasticity of the brain. Research indicates that when people remain in an UpSpiral of positivity, they are more creative, achieve success more easily and more easily acquire religious sentiment. His research shows that in this more productive UpSpiral, people become happier and their overall well-being and life satisfaction increases. Dr. Larkin presents proof that people who stay in an UpSpiral, score higher on every measure of life-satisfaction and well-being.

Dr. Larkin holds a degree from Yale University, with a doctorate in psychology and religion from Harvard University with post-doctoral certification in neuroscience. Dr. Larkin was for 10 years the voice of psychology for the Armed Forces Network broadcasting to 72 countries.
