The Role of Kindness in Survival

I enjoyed an inspiring and fascinating conversation with Dr David Hamilton and am delighted to share it with you here.

The conversation includes:

How surrendering into an impulse took him from lab research to the author’s path.

Linking science and mathematics with spirituality

The big leap we are currently in globally

The role of the placebo effect and its relation to every day life

How we’re genetically wired for kindness and its role in survival as a species

Why goodness is more powerful than negativity

The role of self-kindness in wellbeing

Being a part of the giant leap we’re experiencing globally

How kindness actually strengthens our immunity

How simple practices are returning

The calling to us all as a species

How kindness is scientifically proven to be more contagious than the coronavirus
