Join us in the Oak Room for a nutritious three-course meal from the PALM Café and a discussion from Dr. Kevin Cloninger, Director of Well-Being Coaching. The search for greater well-being, greater self-understanding, and greater health and happiness is as old as the hills. Wellness is much more than “self-care,” buying fitness trackers, or doing the latest fad diet, but in the current media environment it is hard to tell. In this presentation, Dr. Kevin Cloninger will look at a more expansive definition of, and approach to, wellness and what is actually needed to improve both mental and physical health. He will also discuss why there is perhaps nothing of greater importance than the search for well-being as we face the multiple overlapping crises of our times.

Robert Cloninger, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis and Director of the Anthropedia Institute, will describe how to recognize and cultivate personality traits that help us to live more healthy, satisfying, and meaningful lives.

There is a French saying, “c’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron,” which translates to “it is smithing that makes the smith,” or “it is in doing that we become.” Working towards meaningful goals is inherently transformative.
