The Instinct of Compassion and So Much More

Kelly McGonigal is a health psychologist and lecturer at Stanford University. If you are unfamiliar with her work, I highly recommend you soak up all she has to offer.

In this video lecture, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, presents “How Compassion and Altruism Create Resilience”. This talk explores new scientific insights into how cultivating compassion and practicing altruism can increase our well-being during times of stress. And as an added bonus, the lecture starts with a meditation practice so that you can experience the type of meditation that she refers to later in her talk. So it’s a win win…you get a little meditation practice in and you get to learn about the role that compassion plays in our resilience. Yes please.
