The Compassionate Brain: a free 8-session video interview series

compassionate brainI wanted to let you know about a free 8-session video interview series – The Compassionate Brain – hosted by Rick Hanson, PhD, through Sounds True.

The guests are (in order) Richie Davidson, Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Dacher Keltner, Kelly McGonigal, Kristin Neff, and Jean Houston, with Rick offering a summing up in an eighth session. (Rick is a neuropsychologist, a regular contributor to Wildmind’s blog, and author of Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom.)

So far over 33,000 people have seen these free videos, which explore how to use the power of neuroplasticity—the mind changing the brain to transform the mind—to open the heart, build courage, find compassion, forgive oneself and others, and heal the world.

The videos (plus audios alone) will remain freely available for at least six months at the Compassionate Brain archive. All you have to do is register at to stream the videos or audios, or download and save them for future use.

For a preview, see short clips of the videos on YouTube.

The world certainly needs more compassionate brains. This series ais n unprecedented combination of an urgent subject, world-class guests, and a free offering. I thought it was great, and think you will, too.
