Join us as we learn together from physician, theologian and St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute faculty, Dr. Pat Fosarelli. Dr. Fosarelli will speak on the topic “Bouncing Back or Staying Down? Stress, Resiliency & Spirituality.”
Her presentation will explore the practical science behind stress, and the ways that emotional health and spirituality can increase the likelihood of resilience. This event is made possible by a Science & Theology grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
“When the Templeton Foundation publicized this grant to seminaries, I was eager to have St. Mary’s Seminary & University participate” said Dr. Fosarelli. “The topic that I was most interested in pursuing was that of stress, because we all have stress. Yet while some of us are defeated by it, others seem buoyed up by it. What is the science behind those differences? What role does one’s faith or spirituality play in such outcomes?”
This event is free and open to the public. For more information visit website or call 410.864.4202.
