Event Details

Join us for an exciting evening with award-winning science journalist Jo Marchant as she explores the amazing links between our minds and bodies - and shares how we can use this new knowledge to improve our health and enhance our lives.

In recent years, scientists have uncovered startling new evidence about how our mental state plays a crucial role in our physical symptoms, biological responses, immune systems and recovery rates.

At this unique event, Jo will reveal the potential benefits (and limitations) of the healing power of our minds, turning conventional wisdom on its head in fascinating new ways.

“Jo surveys with grace what we think we know about the mysterious and troubling relationship between our minds and our bodies" ~ Guardian
