Can being lonely make you sick? And if so, can tiny moments of meaningful connection help you heal?
Lisa Daron is the founder of The Connection Cure; a cross-country human engagement project exploring face-to-face connection as a catalyst for healing and wellness.
Road tripping to every state in America, Lisa hosts workshops that ignite the spirit, create conversation around the body, and aim to de-stigmatise loneliness in our increasingly disconnected society.
