Richard Davidson: Well-Being Is a Skill


I do not own this. It is from the web stream event by Neuroscientist Richie Davidson Ph.D and his holiness the Dalai Lama in Madison Wisconsin, the Center of Healthy Minds

‘Well-being is a skill.’

1. Resilience – Rapidity with which we recover from adversity.

2. Positive Outlook – mechanisms engaged that improve physio

3. Attention – William James quote

4. Generosity
