Ep 054 The Connection Cure with Lisa Daron Grossman

Feb 29, 2020

Lisa Daron Grossman, founder of The Connection Cure, speaker, facilitator, and coach, has made it her life’s work to listen, learn, and engage in conversations around loneliness, connection, and compassion. 

A native New Yorker, she has been living on the road full-time as part of her cross-country human engagement journey, exploring face-to-face connection as a catalyst for healing and wellness. 

For the past three years she has been traveling across the U.S. meeting strangers and listening to stories of loneliness, love, and belonging, challenging people to notice more moments of connection in their daily lives.
