Sweaty palms. Nausea. Difficulty concentrating. Rapid heart rate. Hyperventilation. We're often very aware of our bodies when we are anxious. That makes sense because God has created us not only as spiritual beings, but also as bodily creatures. So how should we understand the experience of anxiety with respect to our bodies? Are there times when the body plays a more central role in the development of anxiety? This plenary will explore somatic aspects of anxiety and suggest implications for the ways we can battle anxiety—body and soul.
