Lisa Daron Grossman (Ep.33): Curing loneliness through human connection

Lisa Daron Grossman landed in Swaziland as a 22 year old Peace Corps volunteer. The country had the world’s highest incidence of HIV and lowest life expectancy. Her team’s mission: mitigate the impact of the HIV epidemic. She was surrounded by loss and grieving – in her own words “It literally me open, like a sledgehammer to my chest.” Yet she was also surrounded by love, family, and community. She returned to the US with unprocessed trauma, depression and illness and living a dual life of odd jobs that eventually led her to the world of coaching. Today, she’s launching a cross-country project called the Connection Cure, trekking around the US looking to reinstill our lost sense of community and belonging.
