Loneliness and Connection – A STAR Program

Zoom
7pm - 8:30pm
November 29, 2021


Add to Calendar 11/29/21 7pm 11/29/21 8:30pm America/New York City Loneliness and Connection – A STAR Program

Loneliness and Connection

Mondays, November 22 & 29 and December 6 & 13, 7-8:30 p.m. via Zoom

 

Do you sometimes feel lonely and hunger for better connections with other people?  You are far from alone.  When Vivek Murthy was Obama’s Surgeon General, he concluded that loneliness was one of the biggest threats to Americans’ health and well-being — and that was before the pandemic.

 

This four-session STAR program, facilitated by Lori Kenschaft, will explore the nature, origins, and impacts of loneliness and various ways we can create and nurture better connections for ourselves and others.  Participants will read and discuss Murthy’s book Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World, share some of our personal experiences and reflections, and discuss possible ways to apply Murthy’s ideas about creating stronger communities and more satisfying interactions.

 

To encourage good conversations, registration will be limited to 20 people.  Participants will be expected to read the preface and chapters 1 and 2 of Together before the first gathering and to consistently read the assigned chapters before we meet each week.
