    Talking Resilience With a Harlem Minister

    Talking Resilience With a Harlem Minister

    Rev. Audrey A. Williamson of Harlem's historic Mother AME Zion Church estimates that up to 15 percent of her congregation succumbed to COVID-19, a burden of grief that weighs heavily on the community. Eager to help, Rev. Williamson recently teamed up with Mount Sinai's Center for Stress, Resilience, and Personal Growth to facilitate a series of workshops aimed at helping parishioners process grief and build resilience. On Road to Resilience, she shares thoughts on facing fear, sustaining community, and persisting through adversity.

    The Cancer Dancer

    The Cancer Dancer

    Sarrah Strimel Bentley has been singing and dancing since she was three years old. “I would spend hours putting on one-woman shows,” she recalls. “I think we all knew pretty early on what I was destined to do.” Sarrah went on to appear in The Producers, Young Frankenstein, and other Broadway shows. Now a yoga instructor, Sarrah faced the greatest challenge of her life this past year—an aggressive breast cancer that called for an equally aggressive treatment regiment. On Road to Resilience, Sarrah talks about harnessing her experience as a yogi and performer to weather the storm, including by “joy-mining” and staying connected to her body.
    Sarrah Strimel Bentley is the creator and founder of Damn Good Yoga.
