“When the security and well-being of another is as real and meaningful to you as your own- you love that person” - Dr. Stephen Post
What We Discuss with Dr. Stephen Post:
- Contrary to common beliefs, research has shown that children are born generous with a natural empathy.
- The concept of love is difficult for a lot of people to get their hands around. We should be using an every day description with universal examples.
- Being a loving person does not mean you do not look after your own needs. Loving yourself is paramount.
- The great religions and traditions teach cultivating their "true self," learning how to respect others.
- Companies that are generous with their employees see increases to their bottom line. Cultivating workplaces that value compassion and generosity is good for business.
