: Attention
Conversation Dinner Content Image

Can you answer these questions?

Who truly loves you? Who cares about you? Do you matter to someone? Do you get the attention you want and need?

Did you have someone in your life who cared deeply about you, who tended to you, who loved you, who made you feel safe and made you feel like you truly ‘mattered’  — Did you have ‘your person’?

Most of us probably find it difficult to answer these questions, since most of us probably did not get the attention we so desperately needed as children to grow into adults who live joyful and peaceful lives.

Studies show that the single most important thing that a child needs from their parent is demonstrable, consistent proof of their love. For most children, this comes in the form of their parent’s attention. The dictionary defines attention as: “the action of dealing with or taking special care of someone or something.” If you didn’t have “your person” or didn’t get the attention you needed … is it too late?

Join us on April 22nd, 2016 as author, motivational speaker and founder of The Attention Factor, Alice Aspen March, shares her thoughts on how we can get the attention we want and need at any age. Alice, founder and executive director of FACT (Focusing Awareness on Children and Television) known as “The Attention Lady,” has been researching, writing and speaking about the impact of attention on our emotional well being for over 25 years. Don’t miss this powerful and insightful dialogue.

“One of the greatest gifts you can give to anyone is the gift of attention”




Conversation Dinner Detail

Have you ever counted the number of people you’ve ‘spoken to’ in one day? How many of those conversations, were brief, going-through-the-motions exchanges of words? How many were open, honest conversations?

We have lost the art of conversation and at The ACADEMi of Life we are bringing it back. Having meaningful face to face conversations is essential to improving our well-being and essential to making the world a better place.

In an intimate, one-table setting, over a 3-course meal and wine, we create an atmosphere of unobstructed dialogue and self-discovery through the simple act of getting to know all the guests at the table.

We can host only 12 persons per dinner so register early. Bring a friend. We look forward to you dinning with us. Conversation Dinners can also be arranged exclusively for groups, corporations and non-profit organizations. Please e-mail us at info@theacademioflife.com to discuss.
