In January, my therapist Liz introduced me to Krista Tippett.  Now, I listen every week to American Public Media’s On Being with Krista Tippett.  This week’s topic was Investigating Healthy Minds with Richard Davidson.

Neuroscientist Richard Davidson is revealing that the choices we make can actually “rewire” our brains. He’s studied the brains of meditating Buddhist monks, and now he’s using his research with children and adolescents to look at things like ADHD, autism, and kindness.

On the link to the show above are also links to several other related interviews and practices of mindfulness.  I hope you take a look (and listen).
