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.

  1. I’ve watched/listened to this twice now. So much good information! Carl, thank you so much for sharing this. I’ve forwarded it onto my blog page on Facebook and on my personal page. Now I’m tweeting it. :) Blessings.
