The Compassionate Mind

by Ruchiraketu

Drawing together modern neuroscience, positive psychology and traditional Buddhist teachings, Ruchiraketu explores how compassion is an intrinsic mode of the mind, but one that can so easily be overwhelmed by another mode akin to fight or flight response.

He also looks at how compassion can be mistaken for one of its 'near enemies'.

This is the first of a series of four public talks, entitled 'Powers of the Mind'

given at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre March 2011
