Natalie Elliott Handy confessions of a reluctant caregiver

Awe and Wonder: Navigating Life's Later Years with Lauren Henkin, Founder and CEO of The Humane Space






How do the spaces we inhabit and the art we encounter shape our emotions and thoughts, especially as we age? Today, we look at a world where architecture meets art and lifelong learning, a space where curiosity fuels our every day, no matter our age or stage in life.


We're joined by Lauren Henkin, the founder and CEO of The Humane Space, an innovative platform that's redefining how we engage with art and education throughout our lives.  She is an award-winning artist who has had multiple museum exhibitions, has been featured in Architectural Digest, Wallpaper* and NPR and whose work resides in premier museum collections. From shaping luxury wellness amenities to exploring the depths of creativity through her architectural expertise, she's now on a mission to enrich our lives with moments of awe and discovery.


In our conversation today, we talk about how Lauren's app is transforming the way that people of all ages including older adults and caregivers interact with art, offering a sanctuary for the mind where imagination and learning meet. We'll explore the science behind this artistic engagement and share tangible ways to invite more curiosity and mindfulness into your daily routine, proving it's never too late to explore, learn, and feel inspired. Thank you, Lauren, for joining me today!
