The Essence of Humanize

Foundation Dyad Program

A 9-week live online program introducing the practice of the Humanize Foundation Dyad and exploring underlying concepts from psychology and social neuroscience.

Dyad Practice

The 15-minute daily partner-based mental practice through real-time human connection.

Dyad Practice Community

A growing global community of trained Dyad practitioners engaged in daily Dyads, changing partners weekly, experiencing deepening awareness and enriched connection.

Why Humanize?

We live in a time of constant online “connection” but we face a lack of real connection to ourselves and others.

  • 61% of Americans report feeling lonely (Cigna 2020)
  • 72% experience health impacts due to stress (APA 2022)
  • Trust in others is at its lowest level in 40 years (Gallup 2021)

Humanize was created as a compassionate response to challenges and suffering of our modern world. In a world where people are hyper-linked but experiencing increasing rates of stress, loneliness, anxiety, and polarization, Humanize takes a unique approach: utilizing healthy technology to cultivate real connection through short partner-based mental practices — the Humanize Dyads.

The Humanize Dyads reconnect people with themselves, others and humanity and help strengthen resilience and social capacities such as empathy, compassion and social connectedness.

97% of our Dyad Program participants are very satisfied and would recommend the program. Are you ready to join the practice today?

The Science behind Humanize

Humanize was founded in 2021 with the goal of bringing the Humanize Dyads into the world to reconnect humanity. Humanize Dyads and the Foundation Dyad Program are science-based and largely inspired by seminal research by the Max Planck Institute’s Social Neuroscience Lab, in one of the largest scientific mental training studies, the ResourceProject (Singer et al., 2016, Kok & Singer, 2017) and more recently the 9-week online curriculum from the CovSocial project (Godaraet al., 2021).

Humanize has adapted and further developed these engaging and efficient partner-based mental exercises, through the Humanize Dyads. Our aim is to scale this intersubjective skill learning approach for a broader use in society to foster resilience, mental health and social cohesion.
