There was a time if you said meditation it conjured up hippies, communes and a certain amount of stereo-typing.

Also joining us is one of the prime movers in the field of self-compassion, Kristin Neff. We hear about their life’s work and what the potential is for these two methods to help reduce stress and have a happier life. And we will also talk about its potential to change the world.
