The Chemistry of Connection (In-person)

October 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT


The Chemistry of Connection
(Tara Bennett-Goleman & Daniel Goleman with Aaron Wolf)

Learn how our emotional habits can connect us or keep us at a distance — from ourselves and each other. In this combination of lecture, discussion and experiential exercises we’ll integrate an original synthesis of the neuroscience of connection with methods for enhancing relations, whether inner or interpersonal. A map of emotional habits and attachment modes illuminates relationships of all kinds, transforming emotional patterns that separate into ones that connect, enhancing a more genuine interconnection with ourselves and each other, or with the world at large. Now more than ever we need to work to resolve our differences by acknowledging the shared attunement that facilitates empathy and understanding, while not insisting the other person agree with us. In this tenth year of our workshop we will explore these connections in several dimensions.  

This is an in-person event.

Date: Sunday, October 1, 2023
Time: 10am – 5pm*
Location: The Aligned Center (1 Bridge Street – Suite 64, Irvington, NY 10533)

*There will be a 1.5 hour break for lunch. Guests are welcome to bring their lunch or go to a nearby restaurant.

Tara Bennett-Goleman M.A., is the author of the NY Times best-seller Emotional Alchemy and of Mind Whispering. An educator and psychotherapist, she brings practices and perspectives from Eastern and Western psychologies to repattern modes that separate into patterns that connect.

Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., is a science journalist best known for his books on emotional intelligence and on meditation. In these workshops he tours us through relevant neuroscience, looking at how the brain can repattern habits, and how the brain’s circuitry for social connection can lead to increase closeness.

Aaron Wolf , Ph.D., is a water resources geographer at Oregon State University who co-directs the Program in Water Conflict Management and Transformation. Author of The Spirit of Dialogue, he offers lessons from his work around the world bringing together groups ordinarily at odds but who need to cooperate in managing shared bodies of water, to find an underlying connection.
