Dr. Charles Raison on Compassion & Meditation

Here’s a video well worth watching. Dr. Charles Raison was, up until recently, an assistant professor in the Mind-Body Program, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine. He also served as a mental health expert for CNN. I first learned about Dr. Raison because of his involvement with the contemplative studies initiative at Emory, which seeks to explore and document the health benefits of meditation.
