The human body has been designed to sustain itself, heal, and empathize through moments of face-to-face engagement. We are social beings—we need one another to thrive. But when we direct our attention to our screens instead of to each other, our bodies miss out on oxytocin–the bodies’ feel good, “calm and connect” hormone, which helps us understand social cues and create trust. As society seems to become more isolated, with nearly half of Americans feeling lonely, the time is now to prioritize our connections.

The power of seeing and being seen has been scientifically proven to help us heal our bodies. Finding people who help us thrive through support, motivation, and encouragement, deepens those relationships, while building our resiliency. 


Connection Cure workshops are live events that range from 90 minutes to two hours, with some day long and weekend retreats. They are interactive experiences that combine storytelling and learning through experiential activities and exercises, and take place in different environments across the U.S. From small intimate living rooms to libraries, wellness spaces to schools, non-profits to large corporate events, community centers to religious centers, these workshops aim to create a movement of wellbeing through connection and conversation.

In the workshop, you can expect to:

  • De-stigmatize loneliness – learn how and why we feel lonely, how does loneliness affect our health and wellbeing, how has loneliness been a necessity for the survival of our species?
  • Discuss the science behind loneliness and connection—how does face-to-face connection change our bodies’ hormones, lower our cortisol, and boost our immune system?
  • Practice how connection and community can help heal and strengthen our bodies
  • Create conversation around how to deepen relationships
  • Engage in practical, tactical, easy ways to connect
  • Create conversation around using these techniques to build community
  • Discover how connecting with others can help you connect with yourself and your purpose
“It’s has been an incredible privilege to be a witness and participant of Connection Cure. When Lisa adventured to our tiny Wyoming mountain town, I don’t think there was any expectation of what was to come. My privilege comes from baring witness to the workshop itself but also to how Lisa interacts with the world around her. Not only does she bare herself before a roomful of strangers, not know how they may or may not take her in, but everything that she teaches in that room, she is applying to her own real life experiences. From that, we all get to witness profound and extraordinary healing occurring, not just in whatever space her workshop takes place in, but beyond the borders of those spaces as well. The science behind what she shares, she also applies to her daily life; by doing that she leads by example and we are inspired to follow. Which, ultimately, helps to heal our own selves and the world… one micro-moment at a time.”

“Holistic Moms Network is a non-profit organization that has chapters throughout the US, bringing people together, in real life, who are interested in holistic living. Lisa’s workshop was an amazing reminder, providing solid information in a positive way, on the importance of real life connections. [It] was cathartic and an amazing affirmation on why HMN and our chapter leaders do what we do. I am so thankful that I could hear Lisa’s message and information. It has rejuvenated me to continue leading my own HMN chapter with more compassion and enthusiasm.”

“New Vista serves youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) by providing supportive living homes and programs which empower our members to live life to the fullest! Initially, Lisa was invited to speak with our staff and address the roles of caretakers, the importance of engaging in self-care and the need to connect with other staff members. Our members visited with Lisa prior to the workshop, and ended up participating in the workshop. There was a magical force that moved through the room as Lisa interacted with our members and staff, to the point that it moved those of us in attendance to tears, and Lisa openly wept with us. There is genuine love and unadulterated joy in working with individuals with IDD, something that Lisa, in her enlightened sensitivity, immediately connected with. Our members instantly fell in love with her.

Lisa’s workshop was inspirational and emotional, her message resonated with everyone, reminding us of the strength of our connections, and the power of unconditional love in our service to others. Lisa guided us through several exercises that truly brought us back to our core ‘why’. We are grateful to Lisa for her willingness to share her light and love with us!”

“We’ve had many workshops at the Center for Social Change, but none like Lisa’s Connection Cure. Lisa has a realness about her that inspires questions we may have been afraid to ask ourselves. She fearlessly dives into topic’s like loneliness, something we can all relate to but are often afraid to admit. Her desire and passion for connection speaks to us, tearing down our own walls and revealing our true craving for unification. She has a unique ability to speak to just about anyone and meet them where they are with an open mind and heart. So much appreciation for the work you do Lisa, and so very needed at this time. Thank you!”
