TTN (V) - The Connection Cure: An Antidote to Loneliness (Dec. 5, 7pm ET)
The Connection Cure:
An Antidote to Loneliness
An interactive workshop led by
Lisa Daron Grossman
Founder of The Connection Cure
Tuesday, December 5, 2023
6pm CT 5pm MT 4pm PT
Members: $16 Non-members: $30
In today’s society, so many of us feel isolated. We pass by one another on the sidewalk, stand behind each other in the grocery store -- and we feel lonely. This disconnect is literally making us sick. Over 60 million Americans feel so isolated that their health is damaged in ways that mirror the effects of high blood pressure, smoking and obesity.
There is no substitute for human relationships. The Connection Cure workshop will help us find similarities in our experiences, uncover the superpower within our loneliness, and understand the physiological and emotional benefits of connection while creating a foundation of belonging and bravery.
Join us on December 5th to learn about the science and healing benefits of human connection. Small group interactive learning will be included!
