National speaker and author to address burnout, stress and wellness

A virtual CLP, “Burnout: the Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle, with Dr. Emily Nagoski,” sponsored by the Office of Spiritual Life and the Department of Psychology, will take place at 6:30 p.m. on March 25.

We have been lied to our whole lives about what wellness “should” look like. It turns out, wellness is not a state of mind, but a state of action. It is the freedom to move through the innate cycles and oscillations of being human – from effort to rest and back, from connection to autonomy and back, from adventure to homecoming and back. Bestselling author and nationally known health educator Dr. Emily Nagoski will explore the concept of burnout, the science behind the stress response cycle, and help us critically examine the ways our culture talks about stress and wellness.

Emily Nagoski is the award-winning author of the New York Times bestseller, “Come As You Are: the surprising new science that will transform your sex life,” and co-author, with her sister Amelia, of “Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle.” She earned a M.S. in counseling and a Ph.D. in health behavior, both from Indiana University, with clinical and research training at the Kinsey Institute. Now she combines sex education and stress education to teach women to live with confidence and joy inside their bodies.
