Stress and Self-Compassion – Stress is the problem, says Robert Sapolsky.

Is Kristin Neff’s idea of self-compassion the solution?

 

Last week, we at Greater Good explored the impact of stress and the power of self-compassion through our Science of a Meaningful Life speaker series.
On the website, we shared an entertaining, abridged transcription and a series of video clips from a talk on stress by best-selling author and Stanford professor Robert M. Sapolsky. And in the physical realm, we held an event in Berkeley with University of Texas psychologist Kristin Neff on self-compassion.
