This lecture series comes from The Great Courses, a rather eclectic company that offers lectures about all sorts of subjects. Some might think this company appeals to egg-heads only, but I think the lectures are designed to appeal to most people with an ounce of curiosity. Curious? Check out their website here.
The lecture I recently finished was The Science of Mindfulness: A Research-Based Path to Well-Being. The presenter, Ronald D. Siegel, shows how meditation practices such as mindfulness practices have all sorts of practical benefits aside from calming the crazy monkey inside our head. More on this next week.
