Kelly McGonigal: Compassion as an Unfolding Process
Kelly McGonigal is a respected lecturer and author on the subject of the mind-body relationship who integrates the latest findings in neuroscience, psychotherapy, and mindfulness into her work. She is the author of The Willpower Instinct and Yoga for Pain Relief. This week's edition of Producer's Pick features an excerpt from McGonigal's audio program The Science of Compassion. In the words of Sounds True producer Stephen Lessard, "Kelly's work is so powerful because she has the rare and unique skill to balance lessons many of us have uncovered from our own inner journeys with the realities that are being uncovered by the scientific community." Here, McGonigal presents three aspects of compassion training and how they can be woven into the fabric of our everyday lives.
