The Wisdom We're Born With: Restoring Our Faith in Ourselves

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

12:00 PM-1:30 PM

A Healthier U, the Office of Equality and Diversity and the Office of Disability Resources invites you to join us for a special talk with NPR radio host, Dr. Daniel Gottlieb of “Voices in the Family.”

Babies and toddlers are born with the ability to experience love, joy and compassion, and the ability to experience awe in the ordinary. By the time children are in middle school, this "wisdom" begins to go underground. And by the time we reach adulthood, we find ourselves too busy doing too many things. What happened to that joy and shameless love? This talk will touch upon how we can be in touch with the natural joy and compassion that is a basic component of being alive.

Daniel Gottlieb has been practicing psychology and psychotherapy for over 40 years. For 34 of those years he has done so from the unique perspective of a quadriplegic with a learning disability, history of depression and the traumatic death of his sister. As a result of being broken and broken open, he has unique insights into what it means to be human and into the wisdom we are all born with.

“The Wisdom We're Born With: Restoring Our Faith in Ourselves” is open to all Drexel University faculty, professional staff and students. No RSVP is necessary to attend.
