Hedy Schleifer's TED Talk
In her TED talk called "The Power of Connection," Hedy Schleifer describes the "Three Invisible Connectors:" the Space, the Bridge and the Encounter. When people make these three invisible connectors visible in their lives, and embrace them fully, the "miracle" of connection happens. Hedy was invited to be one of the influential 20 minute lecturers at the TEDxTelAviv Conference on Monday, April 26, 2010 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

From Hedy Schleifer: "My life's work has crystallized into one single overarching idea. It is the idea of the three invisible connectors: the space, the bridge and the encounter. When people make these three invisible connectors visible in their lives, and embrace them fully, the "miracle" of connection happens. The space is the relational space "between" people. In order to honor that space, one must cross the bridge, and bring one's full and authentic presence to the world of the "other". And in doing so, the perfect conditions are established to create a true "meeting", an encounter of the souls. Once the space has been honored, and the bridge has been crossed, a genuine, nourishing and fulfilling relationship is established."
