In March, New York City was considered the epicenter of the COVID pandemic. At that time, Wholebeing Institute joined its resources with the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan. The goal was simple: How can we help? Without being together physically, how could we connect virtually to offer critical tools for building resilience throughout our shared struggle?
Out of that desire came the daily Positivity Hour, a break in the middle of the day when positive psychology practitioners from around the world gave freely of their knowledge and talent to serve the greater good. Faculty, friends, and alumni of the many WBI programs presented on a wide variety of topics, lending support to New Yorkers and beyond as the pandemic spread. To view the recording, visit the Webinar section of the blog. Make sure you click “older entries” or “newer entries” on the bottom to see all available.
We wanted to take a moment today to acknowledge the good that was done by all those wise teachers to help us through. These teachers facilitated more than 70 lunch-and-learn webinars, directly touching thousands of people:
Audrey B. Carlson
Dr. Sherry Kelly
Gary Redfeather (Keil)
Jody Hoffer Gittel
Megha Nancy Buttenheim
Scott Barry Kaufman
Tal Ben Shahar
Uneeda O. Brewer
