Lunch with Luminaries: How to Build a Stronger Brain

With Jennifer Fraser

July 6, 2021


Join us for a free webinar with Jennifer Fraser, PhD, a writer and an award-winning teacher specializing in the language of neuroscience and the study of bullying, abuse, brains, and holistic health. 


The more we learn about neuroplasticity—namely that we can change our brains—the more we understand how embodied practices are healing and healthy. We have the capacity to change our brains until our very last moment on the planet. Just like a muscle, we can make our brains more flexible, stronger and more efficient. Learn ways to strengthen your brain in order to make it healthy, happy and high-performing.

Schedule & Format:

  • Tuesday, July 6th: 12-1pm PT


This free 1-hour webinar will feature:

  • Presentation and discussion
  • Opportunities to learn about neuroplasticity
  • Introduction by Denise Goldbeck, creator of the popular Kids in the Spotlight and new Families in the Spotlight programs!
  • Limited-time access to the recording

About the Lunch with Luminaries Series

We’re launching a new webinar series – Lunch with Luminaries – to share different perspectives on a variety of topics of interest to our community. These talks pay homage to early Haven days where co-founders Ben and Jock invited various thought leaders into conversation – sometimes they agreed with the ideas shared and sometimes they didn’t. We think this spirit of curiosity and generosity is an important core value we hold, and we’re excited to recreate this concept today with time and space-transcending technology!

Each webinar will have a Haven Host who will introduce or interview the guest speaker and in some cases take Q&A from the audience. The focus of these 1-hour live events is expansion, learning, and curiosity. They are free for anyone to attend and will be hosted in Zoom, an easy-to-use event platform. Please consider donating to Haven Foundation during registration. Registrants will receive limited-time access to the recording following the event.
