A Holistic Approach to Positive Impact

VIRTUAL AGORA_May _ 1 _ 20186.jpg

Building Extraordinary Connections

 
 

mavis tsai, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist/research scientist and Associate Director of University of Washington’s Center for Science of Social Connection. 

There are three components to an extraordinary interaction:

  1. Open-hearted disclosure of what feels vulnerable and outside of one’s comfort zone.
  2. Being received with warmth, acceptance and non-judgment.
  3. Expressed appreciation of the other’s impact.

At the World Happiness Virtual Agora we'll build on those three. To realize a world with less loneliness requires awareness, courage and love. 

 

Join a Local Agora or Host one

 
 

a World happiness virtual agora...with local roots
