IceBreaker has always been a call to belong to something bigger than oneself. It is the breaking down of barriers and the building up of relationships. It is connectivity for coordinated action.
But can we have coordinated action when connectivity is lost?
Can we heal a community without individual health?
Can we visualize how to get there – if we lose sight of ourselves?
This year, we will blend the virtual and physical while exploring these questions and bringing connectivity at a time when we are necessarily distant. To get there, we are welcoming the world’s foremost experts on human connection to discuss the power of healing and healthy communities.
Our speaker is Dr. Vivek Murthy, the 19th Surgeon General of the United States and author of the recently released book, “Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World.” Joining Dr. Murthy on the stage will be Dr. Richard Davidson, the Founder and Director of the Center for Healthy Minds at UW–Madison and a national leader studying the neural bases of emotion and the importance of mindfulness.
As one particularly fitting adage states, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Join us as we continue seeking and moving forward. To get there. Together.
