Wednesday Night Wisdom with Dr. Edward Viljoen, "Pavlov's Power," 7 pm, June 20


The subtitle of Chapter 3 in Cure: A Journey into the Science of Mind over Body, is "How to train your immune system." Although metaphysicians have long recognized thoughts' influence on our body, scientists only documented the link between the brain and the immune system in the late 20th century.   

At this Wednesday's free class, Dr. Edward examines what scientists have learned about the connections between the brain and the immune system and how this knowledge relates to the teachings of Science of Mind.

The class begins promptly at 7 pm. All are welcome, no need to register ahead of time.
