Self-Compassion Expert Chris Germer on Lessons Learned From the Dalai Lama

Germer’s got a new book out, Wisdom and Compassion in Psychotherapy, which he co-edited with psychologist Ronald Siegel. This edited anthology was inspired by none other than the Dalai Lama and Harvard’s 2009 Meditation and Psychotherapy Conference, which His Holiness graced on Germer and Siegel’s invitation. In this densely rich volume, mindfulness-oriented therapists, meditation scholars and scientists aim to answer an ambitious question: How can therapists cultivate wisdom and compassion in themselves and their clients?
