Holding On: The Value of Human Connection
On June 16th, Harmony member Jen Gillum discussed the value of human connection. The social neuroscience and research is clear—our brains respond to social engagement. We are wired to connect. However, our current cultural landscape often seems riddled with technologies, markets, and institutions that sometimes serve to isolate and even repress us. Jen’s hope is to build a deeper awareness around this potential big-picture conflict but ultimately for each of us to reflect on a personal and/or community-based level.
