Beyond the catchy phrase, what exactly was my long-time friend Dr. Jed Diamond talking about when he coined the term 'Disconnection Syndrome'? Well for starters, you'll find out it's far more complex than people merely being separated from each other. It's a systemic issue that's been brewing for years now, and affects even our relationship with self. To kick off the conversation, Jed defines Disconnection Syndrome and explains how it's directly responsible for many of the ongoing social issues we see in today's world. Discover how this transcends the interpersonal to include how we interact with the world itself, as evidenced by some of the perhaps unexpected environmental effects of the current global pandemic. Meanwhile, what are some of the negative effects that purely electronic interaction has on our real, human abilities to connect? Are there subtle ways we've cheapened our sense of connection without even realizing it? Discover the surprising answers to these questions, along with the shocking ways our physical bodies and minds adapt. The most profound part of this episode comes when Jed details how we have become disconnected from our own identity as men. What happened there, why is it so rampant in today's world and how do we fix it? Overall, how can we get back to basics in the form of real, live human connection, and how might the pandemic crisis actually help us collectively to do that? Many of the men who do Laser Coaching with me or who are on the Ten-Plus strategic coaching program have been communicating with me in recent days about specific ideas and concerns in the midst of the current pandemic.
