This is Now: Kelly McGonigal
January 16, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm PST$15 – $45
What if the key to feeling vividly alive and energetic in your body is closer than you think? No matter what your past experience with exercise has been— from finding it a chore to falling in love with a favorite activity— it is possible to find happiness and meaning through movement.
Acclaimed Stanford research psychologist Kelly McGonigal, who once offered readers a transformative new approach to stress, now looks beyond the gym and around the world to find the secrets of joy in movement. To Tanzania, where one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes in the world live; to a Julliard dance class for Parkinson’s sufferers; to London, where volunteers combine fitness with community service.
Her new book The Joy of Movement draws on neuroscience, evolutionary biology, psychology, and anthropology to illustrate the link between well-being and movement. Join Dr. McGonigal for an evening with our journalist in residence Angie Coiro— a revolutionary look at physicality and joy.
