"COLLECTIVE EFFERVESCENCE"

French Sociologist, Émile Durkheim, coined the phrase "collective effervescence" to describe the connection and pleasure people feel when they share an experience with others, coming together in group ritual.

SHARE THE LOVE!

Encourage your friends, family, and followers to join you on this journey.

“Our research suggests that these kind of shared activities foster a sense of collective effervescence  a feeling of connection mixed with a sensation of sacredness," said Dr. Shira Gabriel, Associate Professor of Psychology at SUNY, University at Buffalo. "These experiences of collective effervescence make us feel less lonely and they give our lives meaning and that little extra kick of special." Now, that is something we could all use right about now.
