About the Event
In this day of tumultuous breaking news, Lise Van Susteren knows how to calm us down – by helping us identify and unpack our reactor types and foster better relationships by showing us how to better understand each other.
Hidden in plain sight but not always in our consciousness, she shares a menu of natural remedies we can use to restore our emotional equilibrium. And weaving in the latest in 21st Century neuroscience – she will share the essentially untold story of why, as we seek to address social justice issues while finding purpose to define our lives, going from being a bystander to an upstander has proved to be the “magic sauce.”
