The demands of life have an impact our bodies and our minds that we’re not always aware of.  Some people, though, seem more able to bounce back from challenges than others. What’s their secret? This course explores how to understand stress, our response to it, and how to grow in resilience. Specifically, we’ll look at the impact of chronic stress, how to understand resilience and finally, how to make use of resources that build resilience spiritually, physically, intellectually, relationally and emotionally.
