Lunch with Luminaries: Defining Science and How it Relates to Haven

With Kevin Wong and Jock McKeen

October 4, 2022

Join us for a FREE webinar with Kevin Wong, PhD Biochemist and son of Haven’s founders Bennet Wong and Jock McKeen.

Growing up, Kevin Wong was always interested in how things work, and naturally was drawn to the biological sciences.  His fathers Bennet Wong and Jock McKeen, the founders of Haven, had followed a similar path in their younger years.  But it appeared to Kevin that his fathers’ journey into the personal development world didn’t fit into the science world he was being taught.  This talk will share Kevin’s definition of what “Science” and the “Scientific Method” is, and then relate it to what he has experienced growing up around Haven.  Many talks with Ben and Jock were had over the years asking what the differences between the two worlds were, and many times the answer was that the two worlds actually complemented each other quite well.  Kevin will share some of these stories, and Jock will be on hand to ensure Kevin’s version of these stories aren’t embellished……too much.

About the Lunch with Luminaries Series

Our webinar series – Lunch with Luminaries – aims 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. Registrants will receive limited-time access to the recording following the event.
