Course Description

Let’s take another dive into our mammalian nature with Dr. Breuning, this time in search of the roots of healthy balance even in times of extreme stress.  The connections between our minds and bodies work to keep us well and mentally balanced.  We evolved with chemicals like dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphin, and when we are in good moods, our brains release them into our bodies.  The result is not just good feelings but good health. We will learn tools to keep this healing tide flowing and guard against the negative effects of social distancing and other stresses.  OLLI and Dr. Breuning offer an exploration of these fascinating depths to allow us to better survive and thrive.
