Connect to Your Community

There is immense power when a group of people with similar interests gets together to work toward the same goals.

“Recent research in neuroscience has uncovered how our nervous systems respond to one another when in a community. Psychologist and neuroscientist Stephen Porges, PhD, suggests that our nervous systems work together in a system of co-regulation.” So writes Tamara Jefferies in a recent Reader’s Digest online article.

She explains that, “Wherever there is a shared interest, a common focus or a united cause, you have community…

A community can give us a sense of belonging and identity, help us learn and even keep us healthier in body, mind and spirit.”
