Dr Lauren Tober speaks with Rick Hanson
In this podcast episode I chat with Rick Hanson, Psychologist, Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, New York Times best-selling author and a guest teacher on my online course A Daily Dose of Bliss.
Rick and I go on a wild adventure, speaking about deeply personal experiences, about psychology research and neuroscience, about self compassion and gratitude, and how gratitude for a tomato can take you into to a vast connection with the cosmos. You will not look at the humble tomato the same ever again after listening to this episode.
