FIRST INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM TOWARD A UNIFIED SCIENCE OF LOVE

HONORING HARVILLE HENDRIX, HELEN LA KELLY HUNT AND JEAN WATSON

And OPRAH WINFREY

for her tireless work to bring love, compassion and understanding to humanity.

June 26th, 2016 Manhattan, NY

 

A community of over 1.5 million people have already heard about this symposium. And many more will before and after the results of this historic event are made available to the world.

People are being told all the time to love others, to love themselves so they can love others; which seems to imply that everybody already knows what love is.

Yet, in 2014 the #1 search phrase on Google was What Is Love?

At a quick glance one might assume these are people looking for relationships. No! There are hundreds of dating sites, clubs, bars, places of worship, the workplace and so on that people looking to meet people can find others. The fact is that people are asking a very simple question because they dont have the answer. Why are they asking? Because, as Camillo Davis, a friend of mine for 50 years says, it is hard to live without love. And he speaks for the rest of the 7.2 billion people on this planet.

Are there other reasons we should all know what love is, besides it being hard to live without love ?

The consequences of our lack of knowledge are incredibly many and painful. Families falling apart, divorces, drug and alcohol addictions, obesity, workaholism, depression and anxiety, burnout, stress, domestic violence, suicides, murders just to name a few.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?

We are bringing together a team of researchers, scholars and authors with uniquely different backgrounds and approaches all with a keen interest in love to solve this enigma. Love has many names; forgiveness, belongingness, the supreme emotion, caring, compassion, altruism, empathy, kindness, intimacy, relationship, happiness, which instead of helping add to the confusion.

Our collective mission is to define love, create a common language and terminology, initiate research, and develop tools to facilitate people getting and giving love that meet their needs.

For instance, today we know that loving behaviors feel good because they help us generate important hormones for healing and wellbeing like oxytocin the love hormone, vasopressin, endorphins, which lower our blood pressure, reduce stress, and speed up healing. We need to incorporate this new science into our definition of love, agree on common terminology, and develop tools that will help people behave more lovingly toward others and importantly, toward oneself, in order to break the cycle of dependency on others for love.

This ambitious undertaking will be truly a labor of love as it requires participants to open their hearts and minds to other concepts in order to arrive at a unified, working definition and common terminologies. This is the first step toward establishing a serious science. Wed never accept having every cardiologist have their own definition of the heart or how it functions. It would not be science and it could not advance. That is exactly where we are with love. Stuck. Once we define love we can begin research in earnest and develop the language and tools that will help every person give and get all the love they need and deserve.

WHO IS PARTICIPATING?

We are very delighted with the team as constituted presently and are expecting a few more to join us

Harville Hendrix, PhD – Getting The Love You Want, founder of Imago Couples Therapy

Helen La Kelly Hunt, PhD – Getting The Love You Want, founder of Imago Couples Therapy

Eva Selhub, MD Harvard, The Love Response

Jacqueline Carlton, PhD – Founding Editor, International Body Psychotherapy Journal

Joseph Lao, PhD Professor, Hunter College,

Jean Watson, PhD Caring Science, Mindful Practice, Founder, Watson Caring Science Institute

Fred Luskin, PhD – Professor, Forgive For Love, Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Project

Lynn Underwood, PhD Professor Case Western Reserve U., The Science Of Compassionate Love

Stefan Deutsch, Gestalt Psychotherapist – LOVE DECODED: Getting The Love You Deserve

Erich Fromm characterized it as ..human beings are starved for love and each year hundreds of millions of additional beings will experience love as unsatisfying and even painful.

Some might question whether it is possible for us to unite they questioned us getting to the Moon! Impossible tasks require vision and persistence, and the people we invited have proven they have both.

This symposium will be the first step, followed if necessary, by others. In addition to the participants in this historic endeavor we anticipate having a small audience of 100+ people who will be given the opportunity to give us feedback and input.

The symposium will be featured in a documentary on love that movie and television professionals, who heard about it and have stepped forward, are hoping to shoot and edit.

We believe our collective prayers to help heal a world engulfed in personal and public strife will be heard and the symposium will begin a process that will be successful and transformative for the global population.

BENEFITS FOR SPONSORS Sponsors will be licensed to use our logo and symposium title in all advertising and marketing. The substance of the topic will primarily appeal to women, who are more interested in love than men. The logo and symposium name can appear in TV & Mag ads, shopping bags, store displays, in the workplace, mentioned during interviews, etc.
