Chemistry of Connection (Daniel Goleman and Tara Bennett-Goleman with Aaron Wolf and R.J. Sadowski)

June 5, 2020 – June 7, 2020 all-day
Kripalu Institute

Connection begins within, then radiates out to create a greater sense of interconnection at every level. This unique program mixes lecture, meditation, group work, and horse whispering to explore the inner, interpersonal, and interspecies dimensions that can help us turn toward a greater awareness and compassion in relationships of all kinds.

Tara Bennett-Goleman integrates Eastern and Western psychologies and practices to transform modes that separate us into patterns that connect us, while Daniel Goleman offers scientific findings from social neuroscience on empathy and relationships. Aaron Wolf shares methods for conflict transformation and effective communication skills, and RJ Sadowski, Jr., demonstrates the principles of horse whispering, offering a powerful model for building trust and security in relationships.
