Is the never-ending negative news cycle taking its toll on you? Is your stress response often activated as you turn on the TV or scroll through social media? Join us for this lunch-hour session with Dr. Michelann Quimby, a leading expert in cyber-psychology, online engagement, activism burnout, self-care, and how to stay mentally and spiritually healthy in our digital world. 

 The internet has become an integral part of modern life. Whether welcomed or intrusive, how we connect with our friends and family, shop, and learn is very often mediated by digital means. The internet can fascinate and beguile us while creating deep imbalances in how we perceive the world and each other. It can also facilitate human community, compassion, and understanding. This interactive and engaging session will explore ways to reconnect with our inner truth and well-being while immersed in a rapidly changing, digitally mediated world.
