Strengthening Personal Immunity and Resilience

Join us for the next webinar from The Learning Community series at The New School at Commonweal, this time with Host Michael Lerner and Cynthia Li, MD. Cynthia’s experiences as both doctor and patient through an internal “dark night of the soul” and a medical condition affecting her immune system point to tools for building personal immunity and resilience in the face of crises like the current pandemic. She has been deeply involved with Commonweal’s work in environmental health, Healing Circles, and Rachel Remen’s Healer’s Art program at UCSF School of Medicine, which began at Commonweal. Listen to Michael’s recent conversation with Cynthia recorded as part of the Awakin Calls series from Service Space.
