Note: This presentation is based upon HUMAN MOMENTS, published by Health Communications.

Life is just a series of mostly forgettable events unless we love …  and love in as many different ways as we can, from loving a person, to a book, to spirit, to a place, to an idea, to a dog — to almost anything. With love, we endow certain moments with a special power and significance. With love, and its cousin, imagination, we conjure up the richness and power that lies beneath the surface of even the most trivial second in our lives.

By the power of love and imagination we turn ordinary, inert moments into what I call human moments, those moments in which we feel connected to someone or something outside of ourselves and in the presence of what matters most, what we call meaning. In this country, most of us actually have what we need to be happy.  The challenge is to make what we have matter—matter now, today — and matter enough.

The basic ingredients of a happy life are simple.  They include friends and neighbors; relatives; some worry you like; perhaps some pets; a club, or a church, or a team; maybe a garden or other passionate pastime or—hobby; maybe a good book or a movie; and some hopes and memories, too.

To relish the full pleasure of these connections, we have to delve deeply into them and make the most of them.  We have to nourish them so they become as strong as they possibly can be.  But how?  It is one thing to say it, another to do it.

In this seminar—which can be adapted to a lecture format, or a half-day format, or a full day—Dr. Hallowell delves into the complexities of the human moment.  He discusses the human moment in families, in business, in schools, and in all the arenas of life.  He provides concrete evidence of the importance of the human moment, and he offers strategic advice on how to create and sustain human moments every day.  He discusses the biology of the human moment, as well as the psychology, and offers many illustrations from his own life and the lives of his patients and friends.  He also offers illustrations from large groups and organizations.

This unique and groundbreaking seminar introduces the audience to a new vocabulary, but more importantly to a new approach to life. In today’s world, this message matters more than it ever has before.
