Creating Community in a Socially Distant World

How do you create a sense of community and closeness when your get-togethers are virtual? How do we get past the weird discomfort of not shaking hands? What can all those huggers do with all that love? When all of our cues for closeness are getting scrambled, we need to learn new ways to create community, show empathy and help others feel a sense of belonging. This humorous, interactive session will break down the interpersonal discomfort we are all feeling and give you a roadmap for new practices (and old ones, too) that can help you close the gap and become a community builder once again. Adapting our ways and how we interact with those around us is one of the many components of brain health. Join us for a virtual night of insights, community and new ways to strengthen brain health.

The speaker will be presenting via Zoom Webinar. You do not need to download any additional software.  We will provide the Zoom Webinar link and passcode once you register.
