It’s the reason why spending time on Facebook makes us feel sad and lonely. Why expensive name-brand medicines provide better pain relief than the generic stuff, even if they share the same ingredients. And why a hospital room with a good view speeds up recovery from surgery.

In The Positive Shift: Mastering Mindset for Happiness, Health, and Longevity, Dr. Catherine Sanderson breaks down the science of thought and shows how our mindset or thought pattern exerts a substantial influence on our psychological and physical health.

JOIN US on Thursday, May 16th, at 7:30 PM for a CPS Lecture with Catherine Sanderson, she will discuss The Positive Shift: Mastering Mindset for Happiness, Health, and Longevity.

About

CPS Lectures is a free discussion series that takes place every few months in San Francisco. It is a program of the nonprofit The diaTribe Foundation. The series honors the memory of Cyril Patrick Shaughnessy, Jr., Kelly's father, who died in late 2002 and love discussions and learning. 

All evenings start at 7:30 pm with wine and cheese, followed by a talk at 8:00 pm and discussion/Q&A to follow.

RSVP required for this free event. You will be given a chance to donate to our nonprofit, The diaTribe Foundation, when you register - this is completely optional. Thank you to all those who have given to date, which has been very generous and has helped enormously to offset the cost of drinks and food, occasional air tickets to speakers, and low-key management of the event.
