Yet we still sometimes feel disconnected from the people around us. We wonder if we could slow down and connect more deeply with others. We sense there might be “more.” But we’re often too busy or distracted to carve out a different way of living.
This website exists to help us change that. So welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I hope we can stir some good for our world together.
This site is a stake in the ground for community.
The ability to connect with others impacts every area of our lives–from family to the workplace. Yet we probably never took a class on friendships or community. Check out the Truth or Dare Podcast for insights to boost your social health. In each episode, leading social experts reveal little known “truths” and “dare” listeners to apply them.
Could the right information change the way we live?
Just like doctors and marketers use proven methods to increase their chance of success, there are “best practices” that increase our chance of forming satisfying social relationships. This 2-year research study seeks to discover which habits most help us develop meaningful connections with those who share our world.
I’m convinced that social health can be learned. So in early 2016, I took a stab at creating a series of live coaching videos called “The Love Your World Challenge.” Thanks to several thousand viewers who participated, a new series is being developed.
If the right people join hands, it can change the world.
Real connection goes beyond local friendship. It moves us to stand in solidarity with distant people on the other side of oceans and vulnerable residents in our own communities. And it takes on world issues–like poverty, racism, and terrorism–that arise, in part, from a breakdown in community. Deep connection puts strangers on the path to become family.
