Description

Loneliness in the Social Media Age

Walk into any classroom today whether it be one of privilege or high risk and you will hear the same repeated tone of loneliness in the social media age. So ‘where are we leading the next generation?’ and ‘what are we reaching for?’ During this session you will better understand the challenges of sustaining balance body, mind and soul in a technology driven society. Reflection upon four key messages offering tools which inspire people to reconnect with what grounds us in life. We must become more present in the moment because 'life is precious, don't miss it.'


In this session, you will learn:

  • Identify statistics and ramifications as a result of too much screen time

  • Understand the importance of protecting youth and families at risk

  • Inspire people to embrace the tools within as they navigate this new time

  • Action to #RaiseTheBar as you move forward


This session is Free to attend ~ Donations of $15 are suggested to support the project which is unfunded.

Proceeds go towards #RaiseTheBar project.
