Did you know the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain to the heart? That there is expanding scientific evidence that by being more compassionate to others it benefits you - leading to a happier and healthy life?

Dr. James Doty, neurosurgeon, author of Into The Magic Shop, and Director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University (CARE) will share his insights and the current science on compassion during this transformative talk. Learn about how the intersection of psychology and neuroscience are being studied to understand compassion. Dr. Doty suggests that the cultivation of compassion within society not only defines our humanity, but is ultimately necessary if our species is to survive.
