The Stress  of Life: A scientific perspective on stress, health, and the power of spiritual practices

Alexandra (“Daisy”) Crosswell, Ph.D., will be in conversation with Andrea McDonough for the evening, discussing her research as a psychological scientist studying how life stress gets under our skin to change our biological functioning. Together we will learn the pathways that connect the mind and body and learn how to harness the power of spiritual practices to combat the negative health effects of stress.
