In this webinar, Daniel Yalowitz will unearth and explore the multifaceted, endlessly fascinating, and delightfully complex experience of human friendship. Just as no two people are alike, neither are any two friendships. He will lead participants through an examination of some of the many universal considerations of friendship based on his years of intercultural research and the recent publication of his book, Reflections on the Nature of Friendship.
Dr. Yalowitz will focus on the following considerations with regard to developing a deeper understanding of friendship:
- What do rubber bands, timepieces, and portals have in common with friendship?
- Why do we choose the people to become our friends?
- How can conflict be healthy for a friendship?
- Into Me You See: What is the art of intimacy in friendship?
- How can we burnish and harvest the gold in friendship?
- In the Age of COVID, what has changed and what hasn’t regarding friendship?
After his presentation, Daniel will respond to participants’ questions and reflections. Join us for a fascinating journey into a world we all know from our life experience yet must learn far more to heighten and deepen this amazing adventure.
