What relationship in your life has helped shape who you have become? I wouldn’t be writing these words without my relationship with Tal Ben-Shahar, who brought me into the world of positive psychology.

Positive connections—those that are life-affirming—are a key part of the Embodied Positive Psychology Summit. We make space for connections; they are an explicit part of the experience.

What relationships do you want to seek out at the Summit, or within the Wholebeing community? Share below.

That’s the intent of the Meals with Mentors and the Peer Presentations at the Summit—to encourage connected wisdom. We just added more opportunities to connect:
