What if you could grow a little stronger, more loving, calmer, and clearer each day? Starting today? And what if you sustain these qualities even during times of stress? This is possible, according to Dr. Rick Hanson, a neuropsychologist and senior fellow at the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center. He offers a set of concrete practices to develop seven key qualities steeped in ancient wisdom practices and cutting-edge neuroscience. Join Yael for the first episode of a transformative two-part series with Dr. Hanson about his latest book, Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness.
