    One of the models of communication we talk about in our MBSR classes is the brilliant work of psychologist Marshall Rosenberg called Non-Violent Communication. Here's a really touching 3-minute introduction to Dr. Rosenberg and his work. If you have attention for a little more, follow this link to a 10-minute excerpt from a documentary on Rosenberg and see the website of the Center for Non-Violent Communication.

    We love Kelly's examination of recent research on mindset and attitude governing how the body-mind responds to stress. See also her excellent book The Upside of Stress.

    I love what meditator, neuroscientist and secularist Sam Harris says so clearly about mindfulness helping us to understand the nature of self but I'm not sure his claim that we're done with Buddhism as a source of insights into meditation quite holds water. What do you think?

    A helpful (and cute!) contemplation on self-compassion from the emotional intelligence project The School of Life - they offer encouragement for a self-compassion break which is slightly different from the one we use in our Mindful Self-Compassion class. Nicely done.

    A very nice 16 minute talk on Dr. Shauna Shapiro's definition of mindfulness, her personal journey as a meditator, and research on how mindfulness may increase our ability to feel compassionate.

    After making a big deal about multi-tasking, Tim learns a life lesson. At the gas station.

    I often play this interesting 20-minute TED talk by the University of Texas social psychologist Brené Brown on vulnerability during the 4th class of MBSR. Take a look and see what you think!

    Very much enjoyed her super-pragmatic attitude around increasing mindfulness just by really engaging creatively with what we're doing. She gets a tad more "out there" at the end in a fun way - mind over matter stuff - but well worth exploring and being open minded about.

    Dr. Langer was one of the authors of the famous study from the 1970's in which they gave nursing home residents a house plant to take care of. Those who took care of their own plant (among other differences) lived longer than those who were told the staff would take care of it.
