The Science of Hope

May 03, 2019 11:42AM
Scientists are learning that stress isn’t just a psychological experience; it’s a physiological state. The film Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope shows how this knowledge is shifting the way some educators, psychotherapists, and physicians approach their work. See a free screening of the film on May 14 at 5:30 p.m. at the Clover Theater in Cloverdale. Seating is limited; RSVP by May 10 via (search on “Resilience”). To find out more about the film, which was an official Sundance Film Festival selection in 2016, see For those interested in exploring constructive ways to address stress in their lives, Thrive Acupuncture and Wellness Corporation in Santa Rosa is hosting the workshop Resiliency 101: Art and Science of Thriving on May 21 at 6 p.m. Admission is $20 and proceeds go to the Ceres Community Project, which provides meals to the critically ill.
